Accent on Adults; The Small College Program at Brooklyn.
Jacobson, Myrtle S.; Offenbacher, Deborah I.
An attempt is made to state unique elements of the Small College Program at Brooklyn. The book explains that few opportunities are available to older adults, that "small" is used to describe the class size (20) which is responsible for the primary group atmosphere created, and that admission is based on criteria, such as experience and interests, which are different from those used in other colleges. Attention is also directed to the students' background, motivation, and academic skills. A section, "The First Year in Retrospect," deals with the students' and teachers' reaction to the program and the sense of achievement felt by the participants. Finally, the year's program is evaluated. (NL)
