KIDS ARE OUR MOST IMPORTANT PRODUCT--LINCOLN LEARNING CENTER. FINAL REPORT.
ROFFERS, DAVID W.
AN EXPERIMENTAL PROJECT FOR JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS OF AVERAGE OR BELOW AVERAGE INTELLIGENCE WHO HAVE NOT PERFORMED EFFECTIVELY IN A NORMAL CLASSROOM SITUATION IS DESCRIBED IN THIS REPORT. THE PROJECT, CONDUCTED BY A SMALL STAFF IN A TEAM ATMOSPHERE, OFFERS COURSES IN AMERICAN INDUSTRY, HOME ECONOMICS, SCIENCE, MATHEMATICS, COMMUNICATIONS, AND FINE ARTS. THE MATHEMATICS PROGRAM AND A COMMUNICATIONS UNIT ON "JUSTICE" ARE DISCUSSED IN SOME DETAIL. BOTH COURSES WERE TAUGHT BY TEAM TEACHING TECHNIQUES. ALSO DESCRIBED IN THE REPORT ARE THE DAILY SCHEDULE AT THE LEARNING CENTER AND THE INCENTIVES INHERENT IN THE PROGRAM WHICH TEND TO MOTIVATE BOTH STUDENTS AND STAFF. AMONG THE INCENTIVES ARE THE SMALLER TEACHER-PUPIL RATIO AND THE WARM INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS MADE POSSIBLE BY THE PROGRAM'S FAMILY ATMOSPHERE. ONE OF THE SEVERAL SUGGESTIONS WHICH ARE MADE IS FOR THE INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM TO BEGIN TO CONCENTRATE ON IMPROVING STUDENTS' READING SKILLS. (LB)
