1968 ABC Summer Program.
Kerr, Frances M.; Russell, Valerie E.
A talent development project at Mount Holyoke College, part of A Better Chance (ABC)-Independent Schools Talent Search program, was offered during the summer of 1968 to 71 disadvantaged high school students from 13 states. Major aims of the program were to help these students with college potential to strengthen their academic skills and achievement, and encourage them to seek college admission. Curriculum stressed mathematics and English was offered in small classes. Resident tutors supervised daily evening study periods. Extra-academic activities were also included in the ABC program. Although the program was available for only six weeks (instead of the eight-week sessions of previous years), the students left with a greater awareness of their capabilities and of the scope of learning. For reports of 1966 and 1967 ABC programs, see ED 024 098 and ED 020 288. (NH)
