PROGRAM AND RESEARCH DESIGN FOR A REMEDIAL RESIDENTIAL SCHOOL FOR UNDERACHIEVERS.
MCCALLISTER, RALPH; AND OTHERS
STUDENTS INVOLVED WOULD BE UNDERACHIEVING JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS. THEY WOULD BE CHOSEN TO PARTICIPATE ON THE BASIS OF ESTIMATED POTENTIAL. THREE OBJECTIVES ARE TO RAISE THE STUDENT'S WORK TO THE LEVEL OF HIS REGULAR SCHOOL, TO HELP HIM OVERCOME HIS SPECIAL PROBLEMS IN BASIC LEARNING SKILLS, AND TO HELP HIM JUDGE WHAT HE MIGHT BECOME AND ACHIEVE. TEACHERS WOULD BE EXCEPTIONALLY GIFTED. INSTRUCTION WOULD BE INDIVIDUAL AND WOULD EMPHASIZE PROGRAMED CURRICULUM MATERIALS, AND OTHER NEW TECHNIQUES. MECHANICAL DEVICES MIGHT BE USED. ALSO EVERY EFFORT TO MAINTAIN A FRIENDLY, CONSIDERATE ATMOSPHERE WOULD BE MADE. COUNSELORS WOULD BE USED IN ADDITION TO ONE TEACHER FROM THE LOCAL SCHOOL, WHO WOULD ACCOMPANY EVERY SEVEN STUDENTS, WOULD BE TRAINED TO USE NEW TECHNIQUES, AND WOULD PARTICIPATE IN COURSES DESIGNED TO HELP HIM UNDERSTAND AND WORK MORE EFFECTIVELY WITH THE PROBLEMS OF UNDERACHIEVEMENT, DEPRIVATION, AND ALIENATION AMONG STUDENTS.
