Evaluation of Training Program for Community College Educators of Academically Deprived Students.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. School of Social Work.
This training program was designed to provide community college educators with a deeper understanding of the nature of poverty and the manner in which poverty and deprivation affect the students' ability to learn in the formal educational system. The program was divided into three basic segments. The first two segments, conducted during the first 2 weeks of the program, were classroom seminars. One section was devoted to deprivation and its effect on learning, and the second section was devoted to learning and teaching theory. The third segment was conducted during the third week of the program and involved an actual teaching situation in which trainees were divided into eight groups with three to five trainees in each group. Each group presented one lesson for the other trainees to observe and evaluate. The teaching presentation was offered primarily to community college and college students. (Conclusions based on partially completed program evaluation are included. Appendixes contain related program material.) (Author/MJM)
