Summary

Project ABLE (Achieving Through Bilingual Education) operated in six public and nonpublic schools in Brooklyn, New York, during the 1978-1979 school year. Approximately 250 students from four language groups (Hebrew, Italian, Russian, and Spanish) received ABLE services. The program focused on the maintenance of bilingual resource centers and on working with tax levy bilingual teachers to enhance the quality of their instructional efforts. Special emphases were given to instruction, curriculum and materials, parental involvement, staff development, and impact on student achievement. Program evaluation was accomplished through classroom observation; teacher, administrator, and project director interviews; and pre/posttest student achievement data from the Bilingual Syntax Measure, the New York City Language Assessment Battery, and the Stanford Achievement Test. Findings indicated that: the project was strong in the areas of curriculum and materials, parental involvement, and staff development; instruction took a variety of forms in both the foreign languages and English; and a significant impact was made on student achievement in a number of areas.
