Prototype Institute for Training Teachers of Low Income and Minority Students: A Delgado Research Study.
Goldstein, Harris K.; Wood, Cherrie Lou
In 1970-71, Delgado Junior College (DJC) held a nine month institute designed to: (1) increase participant understanding of the problems specific to low-income and minority students, including physical and psychological problems and cultural background; (2) improve the methods used to teach these students; and (3) develop innovative and special programs for them. Twenty faculty members, five low-income and minority students, and five representatives of local low-income and minority communities participated in the 18 sessions (two per month) of this institute. The first half of each session was devoted to a presentation by a guest lecturer; the second half involved participants in discussions of how the content of the presentation could be applied to DJC. This report of the institute is intended to assist other community and junior colleges in planning and carrying out similar institutes. It details the participant selection an institute planning processes and the physical setting, as well as the outline for each session. A summary of the findings on problems and background, alternative teaching methods, and special programs are presented, as are summaries of each presentation and discussion section. A bibliography on low-income and minority students and the institute evaluation forms are appended. (DC)
