A Comprehensive Instructional Package for the Disadvantaged.
Garner, C. William
The educational deficiencies of disadvantaged secondary students can be realistically overcome through a comprehensive program. First, the educational package must include an individualized educational plan that focuses on resolving each student's specific difficulties. Second, the package must include a mastery-based instructional program. The mastery learning model of teaching is essential in order for a teacher to reach all the students in a course. Finally, the package must include a set of student services including work experience, job planning, career counseling, personal counseling, physical evaluations, and parental counseling. (MK)
