Compensatory Education: Too Little, Too Late?
Weiss, Lucile
The program described in this paper, based on the language experience approach, considers students' needs, the first of which is immediate success and the second of which is perception of the value of improving their communication skills. In the first unit, the student composes a story or a report on tape and in the second unit, the student presents a short illustrated report. Subsequent units involve research on subjects of interest to students, including note taking on cards, taping and retaping the material, transcription (using either writing or typing), editing, illustrating, composing a glossary, and formulating five questions on the text. No failing grades are given, and students are free to repeat the course as often as necessary. This program was successfully implemented at both the junior and senior high school levels and shows promise--from results of a study conducted at a Florida community college--of being effective at the junior college level.
