Innovative Techniques in Teaching Academically Disadvantaged College Students.
Hampton, Peter J.
This paper reports some of the conclusions arrived at during a five-week Educational Provisions Development Act Training Program for teachers of low-income and minority students at the University of Akron. At that time, the contention that disadvantaged college students need affective recognition as well as cognitive recognition if they are to succeed in college was tested. The student body was made up of 36 compensatory education teachers culled from different parts of the country. The basic objective in the training program was to share professional experiences in compensatory teaching, and in so doing, extricate and collate the most useful and the most innovative strategies, with respect to both rationale and methodology, for teaching academically disadvantaged college students. The program was divided into four major areas of probing: the communications skill area--English and mathematics; the generic subject matter area--the natural sciences and social studies; and the developmental counseling area and the intra- and interpersonal relations area. As the participants met from day to day in discussion, the strategies discussed in the paper were agreed to represent, among others, the most significant, innovative, and useful approaches in teaching academically disadvantaged college students.
