Chinese Opportunities in Career Education (Project CHOICE) served 547 Chinese-speaking limited-English-proficient students in two New York City high schools during the 1989-90 school year. Project CHOICE provided instruction in English-as-a-second-language (ESL), native language arts (NLA), bilingual content area subjects, and career education. The project also offered supplementary student services, staff and curriculum development, and parent involvement activities. The project met or exceeded all of its objectives in the following areas: (1) ESL; (2) NLA; (3) content area subjects; (4) career education; (5) attendance; (6) staff development; (7) curriculum development; and (8) parent outreach. Strengths included effectiveness as a liaison between school staff, students, and parents; excellent student academic achievement and attendance rates; and a wealth of staff-developed curriculum materials.
