This report describes and evaluates the bilingual education program provided by the Language Arts Resource Center for high school students of limited English proficiency whose dominant language was Chinese or Korean. The program served students in the attendance area of Newton High School in Queens, New York City, as well as students at six consortium schools in Queens. As implemented in 1980-81, the program provided instruction in English as a Second Language; native language instruction; and bilingual coursework in science, social studies, language arts, and physical education. Aside from instruction, program activities included curriculum and materials development, staff development, counseling and testing services, and opportunities for parent and community involvement. Evaluation showed that students had generally favorable attitudes toward the program and demonstrated academic achievement gains in all areas assessed. The report includes recommendations for greater program effectiveness. (MJL)
