Brown, Peggy, Ed.
Forum for Liberal Education, v5 n5 Apr 1983
Some of the ways in which colleges can work with high schools to enrich secondary school experiences and increase access to and success in higher education, are described, and an essay on successful cooperative activities is presented. In "Pieces and Parts," James Herbert notes efforts to improve the preparation of students for college by clarifying knowledge and skills needed by college entrants. Other efforts include programs to attract students and enrich precollegiate education, inservice programs for high school teachers, and collaboration in curriculum development. The following cooperative programs are described: The School-College Articulation Program, Kenyon College, Ohio; Yale-New Haven Teachers Institute, Yale University, Connecticut; educational offerings for high school students at Simon's Rock of Bard College, Massachusetts; a program placing minority high school students with established researchers at The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor; The Seattle University/Seattle Preparatory School, Washington State; a writing program and an academic enrichment program for high school students at Georgetown University, District of Columbia; and an outreach program to high school instructors by Brooklyn College, New York City. Seven additional programs and information on resources are also described. (SW)
