THE RICHMOND PLAN--THE PRE-TECHNICIAN PREPARATORY PROGRAM.
FELDMAN, M.; AND OTHERS
THE PURPOSE OF AN EXPERIMENTAL PLAN FOR TRAINING TECHNICALLY ORIENTED STUDENTS IN THE LAST 2 YEARS OF HIGH SCHOOL IS TO MOTIVATE UNDERACHIEVERS, POTENTIAL DROPOUTS, AND PROBLEM STUDENTS WITH MECHANICAL APTITUDES SO THAT THEY CAN REALIZE CONCRETE GOALS LEADING EITHER TO EMPLOYMENT OR TO CONTINUED EDUCATION. THE PROGRAM IS COMPOSED OF A 2-YEAR SEQUENCE OF ENGLISH, PHYSICS, CHEMISTRY, MATHEMATICS THROUGH TRIGONOMETRY, AND TECHNICAL LABORATORY (AN INTEGRATED SHOP COURSE INCLUDING DRAFTING). HISTORY, SOCIAL STUDIES, AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION ARE TAKEN IN CONJUNCTION WITH OTHER STUDENTS. TECHNIQUES UTILIZED ARE (1) TEAM TEACHING BY TEACHERS TRAINED IN SUMMER WORKSHOPS AND WHO CONFER WEEKLY TO REVIEW, EVALUATE, AND PLAN, (2) PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION FOR ENGLISH AND MATHEMATICS, (3) CORRELATION OF ACADEMIC SUBJECTS TO THE TECHNOLOGICAL LABORATORIES, AND (4) CONTINUOUS THEORY-APPLICATION METHODS. THE PROGRAM IS FINANCED BY THE ROSENBERG FOUNDATION. A 3-YEAR GRANT OF $185,000 ALLOWS COGSWELL POLYTECHNICAL COLLEGE, A 2-YEAR TECHNICAL INSTITUE, TO DEVELOP THE CURRICULUM COMPLETELY AND TO EXTEND IT TO 10 HIGH SCHOOLS AND TO TWO PUBLIC JUNIOR COLLEGES WHO WILL REVISE THEIR CURRICULUMS TO ADAPT TO THE NEEDS OF GRADUATES OF THE EXPERIMENTAL HIGH SCHOOLS. APPENDED IS A PAMPHLET THAT DESCRIBES THE PREPARATION OF CURRICULUM MATERIALS AND AN INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM, EMPHASIZING THE SPECIFICATION OF OBJECTIVES, THE PREPARATION OF REQUIREMENTS, EVALUATIVE PROCEDURES, CONTENT OUTLINES, COURSE SEQUENCES, AND TEACHING METHODS.
