The main goals are to prepare students to function successfully in mainstreamed classes to provide enough "survival" English to enable students to function in their new community. Curriculum Objectives: Students will:  · develop a positive self image within the context of their own heritage and within the larger context of the total society  · develop a positive self-image which will enhance the individual's ability to fruitfully determine, understand, and examine his capacities, interests, and goals in terms of society  · cherish values and pride of identity · develop an understanding of American Citizenship
