English Program Expansion via Computer Science
Program Objectives
The goal of the computer-aided English Program is to expand our current English program by focusing on the following areas using self-pace, interactive-user friendly software.

Dialectical (language) problems of the Black Child. This program will be rare in that it helps youngsters overcome non-standard English usage. Standard English Acquisition- helping students understand, speaking and writing standard English. The program specifically addresses standard English usage, grammar and vocabulary development as they relate to oral and written skills. The ability to communicate in standard English is the foundation for all learning. Those students lacking in standard English proficiency will have difficulty in reading, writing and spelling skills. Social Studies Enhancement- an instructional program that uses social studies as a model. The reading program is useful for enhancing African American Heritage. It is useful for teaching dates, events, famous people, terms, and in imparting information in any area which students need to learn.
