A PROGRAM OF DEVELOPMENTAL STUDIES, INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS AND CURRICULA UTILIZING COMMUNITY RESOURCES FOR THE EDUCATION OF THE LOW-ACHIEVING AND CULTURALLY DISADVANTAGED STUDENT.
HILLEARY, LOUIS F.; AND OTHERS
THIS REPORT BY A COMMITTEE OF THE FACULTIES OF THE LOS ANGELES JUNIOR COLLEGES OFFERS SPECIFIC SUGGESTIONS FOR EDUCATING THE DISADVANTAGED STUDENT. INSTRUCTORS MUST APPRECIATE THE DIFFICULTIES OF REACHING THE NON-ACHIEVER, WITH HIS FRUSTRATION, APATHY, AND REBELLION AGAINST EDUCATION, AND THEY MUST UNDERSTAND THE NECESSITY OF ENCOURAGING HIM TO INCREASE HIS KNOWLEDGE OF BOTH HIMSELF AND HIS SOCIETY. INSERVICE TRAINING GIVES THE TEACHER AN OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN FROM EXPERIENCED INSTRUCTORS, TO DEVELOP AND TEST MATERIALS, AND TO TRY NEW TEACHING METHODS. THE OBJECTIVES OF A PROGRAM OF DEVELOPMENTAL STUDIES ARE TO HELP THE STUDENT DEVELOP (1) HIS KNOWLEDGE OF HIMSELF AND THEREFORE OF HIS EDUCATIONAL GOALS, (2) HIS ABILITY TO READ, WRITE AND SPEAK EFFECTIVELY, AND (3) HIS EFFECTIVE PLACE IN SOCIETY AT LARGE. CURRICULA, INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS (INCLUDING THE USE OF TUTORS AND TEACHER ASSISTANTS), AND MATERIALS HAVE BEEN PREPARED IN THE FIELDS OF COMMUNICATION, PSYCHOLOGY, AND INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDIES. COPIES OF THE OUTLINES AND DEMONSTRATION UNITS, AS WELL AS OF OTHER BACKGROUND PAPERS, ARE AVAILABLE FROM LOUIS F. HILLEARY, DEAN OF INSTRUCTION, LOS ANGELES CITY COLLEGE, 855 VERMONT AVE., LOS ANGELES, CALIF. (HH)
