The Design and Implementation of a Learning Center for Career Oriented Students.
Beitler, Lorraine; Martin, Irene
A program to teach learning and reading skills to career-oriented junior and community college students is described. "Learning Strategy" classes are given twice a week, at New York City Community College, and are supplemented with tutorial sessions. The objective of the program is to work from the student's area of highest motivation (his vocation) toward broadening his learning skills. Materials are provided in a learning center for use by the students and their tutors. The personnel of the program (members of various departments, counselors, reading teachers, tutors and students) meet in seminars, demonstration lessons, and conferences with the program coordinators. Because the learning/reading classes are based upon the particular area the student is working in, it is hoped the program will be more responsive to student needs. Diagrams of organizational features are included. (AL)
