Who Am I?
Ferree, Robert F.; And Others
The report encompasses a joint student-faculty 2-year project (funded under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act) conducted in an effort to decrease problems of the educationally handicapped students coming to Bacone College. In better preparing the student with low ACT scores for college level work, specialized or modified courses were offered in freshman English and mathematics as well as in core courses. In furthering the college program to relate to the unique student body that consisted of Negro, Caucasian, and American Indian students, a "philosophical core theme" concept of class organization was implemented. Units within the core concept included Discovering Who I Am, I Participate in Society, Understanding Myself, Math-Science for Me, My Right to Read, Personality Through Speech, I Compete with Myself, Developing My Language Tools, and Writing for My Now and My Future. Descriptions of these units, projections for continued development of Bacone's program, and comments by former Bacone Students are presented in the Document, as well as results of a follow-up study of 51 Bacone students who transferred to Northeastern State College. As a result of the follow-up, conducted to determine whether grades earned at Bacone could be used to indicate a student's ability to do college work elsewhere, it is believed that students from Bacone can do college work in other institutions.
