An Investigation of Factors Contributing to and Interfering with the Successful Achievement of Remedial English Course Objectives in Los Angeles City Junior Colleges.
This study proposed to identify the objectives of the remedial English 21 course and to discover the factors that contributed to or interfered with the success of the objectives. The major part of the study involved 500 students randomly selected, 100 from each of five junior colleges. Students answered a questionnaire indicating which incidents they felt encouraged or hindered the successful achievement of the seven course objectives. Using the critical incident technique, the responses were analyzed. From the findings it was recommended (1) that teachers encourage class discussion, refrain from constant lecturing, use many examples, use audio-visual materials, and ask and answer student questions and (2) that students complete many exercises, participate in class activities, and read extensively.
