Shore, Rima, Ed.; And Others
The Secondary Chinese Bilingual Education Program, which operates at two high school sites in New York City, is designed to develop English language skills and provide academic and vocational instruction to Chinese speakinq students of limited English proficiency. This report describes the program as it was implemented in 1980-81. The program description includes the demographic content; participant characteristics; objectives and organization; the instructional component, consisting of English as a Second Language, native language instruction, content area classes, vocational training, cultural awareness, and bilingual instruction; noninstructional and supportive services; staff development; community involvement; and program evaluation. Evaluation results indicate that participants made gains in English as a Second Language and generally did well in mathematics, science, social studies, native language arts, business education, and other vocational and language arts classes; and that program attendance rates were higher than attendance rates for the schools as a whole. Recommendations for program improvement are presented. (MJL)
