HS ELD students: Analysis on Preparation for the Math CAHSEE

A thesis presented on the history of how a local High School (HS) has handled the English Language Development (ELD) student population in preparing them to be successful in the Math CAHSEE (California High School Exit Exam). This case study will lead us into class samples of ELD students who I have taught for the last two years. In addition, a comparison EO (English Only) and ELD student will be made to compare if we at HS are meeting the ELL (English Language Learners) student needs. Comparison will consist of Quarterly Assessments, CAHSEE results and CST (California Standard Test) results. Other resources will be used to analyze if the state is leading us in the correct path in meeting ELD student's needs. Prop. 227 will be analyzed to see if we have made improvements towards narrowing the gap between EO students and ELD students.
