Upward Bound was a precollege program geared for high school students with potential who had been handicapped by economic, cultural, and educational deprivation. It involved a full-time summer program and follow-up programs (counseling, cultural activities, and physical education) during the academic year. Students stayed in the program for three consecutive summers and were instructed in language arts, mathematics, study methods and techniques, and perceptual skills. Academic skills were stressed to encourage an enduring desire to pursue a college education or some kind of post secondary school training. Curriculum and teaching methods are generally described along with specific examples of word games, dictating exercises, and language study units. (KG)
