Orientation to Continuation Education. A REACH Operational Project.
Botts, Robert E.
A continuation school is a guidance and counseling-oriented institution which concerns itself with the motivation of unmotivated students, while also providing a highly academic program for selected students. The study discussed here, focuses on two approaches being tried with students who cannot succeed in regular school programs: (1) the continuation school, which operates as a separate entity apart from the regular high school facility, and (2) continuation classes which operate as an adjunct to the comprehensive high school. Generally, both students, parents, and teachers favor the separateness of the continuation school over the classes within the high school, since smallness and flexibility are absolutely necessary for the success of the continuation program. The program discusses the student and his lack of motivations, possible techniques and methodologies to be tried, and specific instructional guides which may assist the individual teacher in working with her group. This revised edition of Operation Reach is intended only as a suggested guide to teachers in continuation education programs, and it is hoped they will elaborate and refine it to satisfy their own purposes. The research reported herein was funded under Title III, Elementary and Secondary Education Act. (Author/CJ)
