Blueprint for the Disadvantaged.
The program outlined in this proposal describes various teaching techniques which are suited to the styles and strengths of disadvantaged students. The general approach is directed at convincing the disadvantaged student that he can learn and become educated without becoming a middle class stereotype--that he can retain his own identity. A "New Careers" program is also suggested which would allow inexperienced, untrained people to assume routine, daily tasks in the classroom in order to allow the teacher to concentrate on creative methods of teaching. Recruited from the community, male class room aides would provide male role models and reinforce the assurance that the deprived can succeed in the system. (KG)
