Clarke, Johnnie Ruth; And Others
This monograph, consisting of four sections, focuses on developmental education in the higher education setting. The first section, by Johnnie Ruth Clarke, provides an overall perspective on learning through developmental programs. Included are discussions of the developmental approach, developmental students and instructional activities, and instructors for and evaluation of developmental programs. The second section, by Marge L. Ford, describes Penn Valley Community College's learning skills laboratory, a resource center for developmental education that is simultaneously integrated into the mainstream of the college. The third section, by John E. Roueche, confirms the need for developmental education, offers some suggestions on where to begin in establishing effective programs, and suggests that there are models available for implementation of effective developmental programs. The fourth section, co-authored by George Lewis, Richard Lewis, Arthur Spong, and Norwood Taylor, reviews developmental studies at Sandhills Community College, a program that is not separated from other programs offered by the college. Included are discussions of the learning laboratory, the counseling/advising program, the tutoring program, the remedial English program, and the reading program. Bibliographies are included for each section. (JDS)
