Journey Into Discovery. The Thirteen-College Curriculum Program.
Institute for Services to Education, Inc., Washington, DC.
The Thirteen College Curriculum Program is a cooperative venture involving predominantly Negro colleges and the Institution for Services to Education. The program is developing five new courses for the freshman year of college and two new courses for the sophomore year. The program consists of 100 students on each campus in the first-year program and 100 in the second year, with a separate faculty of 12 teachers, a counselor, and a director. In its second year, the project has touched the lives of approximately 2,600 students. Another part of ISE's program is to provide teachers, through an 8-week summer conference, the opportunity to think about what they are doing and to share their new thoughts. The results is a curriculum the teachers themselves develop and teach. As the program begins to show itself effective, the plan is to make the experience more generally available, to build bridges into the regular college program, working first with the first two years of college, and then, hopefully, with the upper levels. Sections of this report cover student background and achievement, student evaluation of the program, a teacher's impression of teaching, and samples of teaching plans from the teacher workshop, a math and a science class. Appendixes include: funding agencies, college presidents and project directors, ISE board members, and the ISE staff. (Author/PG)
