The activities of the New England Multifunctional Resource Center for Language and Culture in Education (MRC) are reported for October 1, 1992 through July 31, 1993. The MRC is a federally funded program of training and technical assistance for educators of limited-English-proficient (LEP) students in the New England area. A consortium of Brown University (Rhode Island), the University of Hartford (Connecticut), University of Southern Maine, and University of Massachusetts, the MRC conducted 303 workshops, 1,200 consultations with individuals and teams, and 745 other activities such as advisory board participation and symposia. It also co-sponsored numerous conferences, institutes, professional development seminars, and regional workshops in cooperation with local and state education agencies and other public and private agencies. These activities addressed both general and special interests, including the needs of Native Americans, superintendents, principals, and teachers and the integration of educational technology into classroom instruction. A special project gathered information on bilingual education program administration. The annual report details these and other efforts, and includes evaluation data from service recipients, staff, and project personnel. (MSE)
