Implementing the Open Door: Compensatory Education in Florida's Community Colleges. Phase II--English Composition.
Stevenson, Jane L.
A study of compensatory education programs in written composition was conducted in ten Florida public community colleges during the winter and spring of 1970. A major purpose of the study was to establish a data base from which a model could be developed that might improve the effectiveness of these programs. The existing programs at the colleges are described in terms of types of programs offered, criteria for placement of students in remedial courses, course content, and instructional techniques used. Recommendations (including goals and purposes, suggested objectives, content, instructional theory, and evaluation) for remedial written English composition programs designed for disadvantaged students are presented and discussed in the remainder of the report.
