To Gladly Learn. An Account of the Program for Pre-College Centers.
Educational Services, Inc., Watertown, MA.
The Pre-College Program is a unique design in inductive learning for the high school student from a family of low or modest income. In this program the student is not "taught," he is provoked to learn. It aims at encouraging him to integrate and profitably use his present knowledge, as he continues to increase it in a free and informal academic atmosphere. Each Pre-College Center offers English and mathematics classes, special-interest workshops, cultural and recreational activities to about 200 high school seniors and juniors, who remain in the Program for one full year. On Saturday mornings during the academic year and daily during the summer session, six selected teachers in each discipline conduct classes of not more than 20 students, using materials that are developed to broaden the contexts of English and mathematics instruction. This document presents an introduction to the Pre-College Program, a brief history of the program, and examples of the English and mathematics program. A sampling of student activities and sample data on pre-college students is also included. (Author/PG)
