Designed to provide individualized instruction in English and mathematics, the academic resource center (ARC) component is one of three instructional components of the Research for Better Schools' career education program and is composed of four items. The first item, the ARC basic information series, provides ten leaflets which discuss (1) the student population, (2) selecting a site, (3) the professional staff, (4) equipping the ARC and establishing the information flow, (5) the ARC aide, (6) orienting students, (7) setting up the ARC, (8) orienting interested observers, (9) initiating placement procedures, and (10) assessing the implementation. The second item found in the ARC component is an administrator guide which highlights budget allocation, staff appointments, and the use of implementation committees. The ARC teacher's guide contains information designed to ease the shift to individualized instruction. The final item is a handbook for aides which outlines the duties and responsibilities of the ARC aide. (LRA)
