UPWARD BOUND--WAR ON TALENT WASTE AT INDIANA STATE UNIVERSITY.
Indiana State Univ., Terre Haute.
THE UPWARD BOUND PROGRAM AT INDIANA STATE UNIVERSITY IS THE SUBJECT OF THIS SPECIAL ISSUE. HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS FOR THIS PRECOLLEGE PROGRAM WERE RECRUITED IN METROPOLITAN AREAS WHICH HAD ACTIVE COMMUNITY ACTION PROGRAMS. THE PRIMARY AIM WAS TO IDENTIFY AND REDIRECT UNDERACHIEVING DISADVANTAGED YOUTH WITH POTENTIAL AND TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO ASPIRE TO A COLLEGE EDUCATION. THE INDIVIDUAL ARTICLES IN THE ISSUE DISCUSS PURPOSE, RECRUITMENT, AND SELECTION CRITERIA, THE THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK, COUNSELING SERVICES, AND EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES. THE PROGRAM IS DESCRIBED BY PARTICIPATING INSTRUCTORS, WHO TAUGHT LANGUAGE ARTS, MATHEMATICS, STUDY SKILLS, PERCEPTUAL SKILLS, MUSIC, ART, THEATER, AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION. ONE ARTICLE REPORTS ON SOME INNOVATIONS, AND ANOTHER DISCUSSES THE PROGRAM DURING THE ACADEMIC YEAR. THERE ARE SECTIONS ON THE ADMINISTRATION AND EVALUATION OF THE PROGRAM AND ON ITS POTENTIAL EFFECT ON EDUCATION IN GENERAL. A STUDY OF THE INFLUENCE OF ACTING IN A PLAY ON A STUDENT'S ADJUSTMENT IS INCLUDED. THE FINAL ARTICLE URGES THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN URBAN-ORIENTED EDUCATION. THERE IS AN EXTENSIVE BIBLIOGRAPHY. THIS DOCUMENT IS A SPECIAL ISSUE OF THE "TEACHERS COLLEGE JOURNAL," VOLUME 38, NUMBER 4, JANUARY 1967. (NH)
