Upward Bound: A Review of National Evaluations and Counseling Implications: 1966-1978.
This paper examines the effects of Upward Bound Programs upon underachieving minority group members and assesses the various sub-components of Upward Bound Programs. A description of national evaluations as they relate to the programs is presented and a framework is provided that is essential for understanding the history of Upward Bound from the pilot programs initiated in 1965, through the more contemporary programs. Additional research provides more specific analyses of institutional programs, with focus upon the assessment of academic and social development among participants. Effects of counseling and useful counseling methods for ethnic minorities are discussed. The concluding section treats several questions raised throughout the paper and includes an evaluation of the most effective counseling and teaching approaches and the most successful program designs. An overview of basic skill assessment of high school students is also presented. (Author/RLV)
