Development of a Junior College Communication Curriculum for Language Divergent Students.
Eggebrecht, David W.
It is the purpose of this proposed curriculum to find a means of motivating the language divergent student to improve himself academically and socially, to participate actively in educational experiences which will help him to self-actualize, and to afford him learning experiences which will enable him to become an independent learner. A search was made of literature and other available sources to determine what has been and is being done for language divergent students in higher education. The proposed curriculum is developed in two major phases: an introductory phase and a transitionary phase. The introductory phase is concerned with orienting students to the program and academic life, developing individual reading skills, and training the students in the processes of communication. The transitionary phase goes into three large areas: (1) Language and Its Development, (2) Speech and Listening, and (3) Literary Genres. The proposed curriculum attempts to begin with the language divergent student at his entering level of educational competence and develop him as an individual from there. (Author/WR)
