Those policies were conceived to rebuild school reputation and to resume the confidence of the parents in order to recruit more students who otherwise, would be assigned to public schools, without paying higher tuition and fees. One of the authors worked as a member of the board of trustees in the school and was asked to participate in the process of the restructuring of English curriculum and instruction. In the meantime, Taiwan National Science Council granted a research project on school innovation for the other two authors. The team entered the school site to collect data by using classroom observations, interviews, and document analysis from May 1999 to May 2000. This paper briefly reports the result of the research project.This paper is divided into four parts. First, we introduced the background of the curricular and instructional innovation in the school. Second, we described the school characteristics, research methods, and the procedures of the data collection is described. Third, we reported the findings by analyzing the motivation of the innovation, new measures employed, operation of the implementation, and problems and difficulties. Fourth, we explained the im
