Choy, Michelle; And Others
The Queens Chinese/Korean Bilingual Language Arts Resource Center operates at Newtown High School, in a multiethnic neighborhood in Queens, New York. The program, designed to provide bilingual educational services and curricular materials to Chinese and Korean students (grades 9-12) at Newtown, and ancillary services to students at Bryant High School, has several objectives: (1) to provide participants with the skills they need to function in mainstream classes; (2) to help students complete their high school education and pursue higher education; (3) to encourage the development of a positive self image; and (4) to eliminate or reduce content-area failures in social studies and in Chinese language arts (this objective is part of the Chapter 720-funded component). The program includes classroom instruction, curriculum development, supportive services (grade advisement and guidance, family assistance, extracurricular activities); staff development; and parental involvement efforts. This report describes program activities and objectives, and provides data on program results, including student achievement in all subject areas and parent achievement in English. (GC)
