"The proposal provides a program for students involved in primary and sheltered language instruction to access the core curriculum in science. We will use technology tools including HyperStudio. Students will create projects which emphasize the use of rich visual images and the ability to structure their learning around graphic organizers by making HyperStudio presentations. This approach has been selected to provide interesting and meaningful ways for students to master core curriculum. All students receive the core and all learners will participate in their science classrooms. The project relies heavily on staff development, the training and deployment of student technology aides and parent volunteers."(Scholastic, website: http://teacher.scholastic.com/professional/grants/devstate.htm
