OPERATION GIANTSTEP, RESEARCH IN A NEW REMEDIAL PROGRAM AND COMMUNITY COLLEGE INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGY CURRICULUM FOR DISADVANTAGED HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES.
LOWENS, MILTON; STILLERMAN, MANUAL
A COMPREHENSIVE CURRICULUM STRUCTURE WAS FORMULATED AND SPECIFIC PREPARATORY STEPS OUTLINED FOR THE ORGANIZATION AND OPERATION OF AN EXPERIMENTAL JUNIOR-COLLEGE PROGRAM IN INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGY FOR DISADVANTAGED YOUTH. THIS PLANNING RESULTED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PROPOSAL FOR A 5-YEAR, $1 MILLION EFFORT ON RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT OF TWO NEW POST-HIGH SCHOOL CURRICULUMS. THE FIRST CURRICULUM WAS A REMEDIAL PROGRAM DESIGNED TO PREPARE GENERAL DIPLOMA HIGH-SCHOOL GRADUATES WHO ARE INELIGIBLE FOR COLLEGE ADMISSION FOR THE SECOND CURRICULUM, A 2-YEAR VOCATIONAL PROGRAM IN INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGY. THE EXPERIMENTAL PLAN PROPOSED WAS FOR 100 EXPERIMENTAL STUDENTS AND 50 CONTROLS TO GO THROUGH AN INSTRUCTIONAL AND FOLLOWUP SEQUENCE WHERE THE CONTROL SUBJECTS WOULD ENTER THE INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGY CURRICULUM WITHOUT REMEDIAL TREATMENT. A COPY OF THE PROPOSAL, BR-7-0260 WHICH WAS SUBMITTED TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IN AUGUST 1966, WAS INCLUDED WITH THIS REPORT. (JH)
