Through Federal Fundingland with Gun and Camera.
Casey, Rhoda Lintz
When applying for federal funding of an academic project, the writing of the proposal is important and should include a description of the institution and its population, a statement of the problem to be alleviated, an outline of the proposed attack on the problem, a specific catalog of each necessary item, and an itemized statement of the anticipated budget. A project partially funded by Title III for 1973-1974 involved the establishment of an individualized, correlated reading and writing training program for about 200 students with low entry behavior at an open enrollment community college in the Los Angeles area. Although only part of the necessary funding was granted, adjustments in equipment and remodeling were arranged, and additional salary money from a special campus office was made possible. Staff training (4 faculty members, 10 teaching assistants, and 4 student tutors) and reading lab remodeling preceded the commencement of classes. Student success provided one measure of program effectiveness, while various evaluations suggested changes to improve the program in the future. (JM)
