High School/College Partnerships. 1981 Current Issues in Higher Education, No 1.

The need for better high school/college articulation is addressed in five papers. In "High School/College Partnerships That Work," Ernest L. Boyer describes the ongoing efforts to encourage high school/college collaboration and considers five principles necessary for establishing cooperative programs, including the need for educators at both levels to agree that they do have common problems, and the need to focus on one or two specific goals to keep the programs sharply focused. Michael O'Keefe, in "High School/College Cooperative Programs," describes model programs to facilitate student articulation,improve the quality of secondary education, and build professional relationships between high school and college teachers. In "Humanities for the High Schools," Gale K. Crouse describes the University of South Dakota's program of Extended Teacher Institutes, which bring university faculty together with teams of high school teachers and administrators to create integrated humanities courses for individual high schools. In "Building a High School-to-College English Curriculum: the Queens English Project," Janet R. Brown describes an effort at Queens College in New York to build the reading and writing skills of 11th and 12th grade students through the efforts of faculty and administrators from local high schools and the college. In "Quality and Equality in High School Curriculum: A College Board Study," George H. Hanford describes Project EQuality, a 10-year project that emphasizes both equality through access (especially for minorities) and quality through revised college preparatory curricula. The effort has been launched with a dialogue among school and college teachers. (SW)
