College and Career Transitions Initiative Virtual Reader.
League for Innovation in the Community Coll.; Miami-Dade Community Coll., FL.
The League for Innovation in the Community College reports annually on the College and Career Transitions Initiative (CCTI), which is administered by the Office of Vocational and Adult Education, U.S. Department of Education. However, the report does not represent the positions or policies of Federal Government. This document was created to provide a reference to various books, articles, and other publications regarding CCTI, whose goal is to strengthen the role of community colleges in easing student transitions between secondary and postsecondary education and improving academic performance in both the secondary and postsecondary levels. The document offers two resource lists: a "Virtual Reader Essential Reading List"; and a "Virtual Reader Library." Both lists are divided into the following categories: (1) remediation; (2) enrollment; (3) achievement; (4) attainment; and (5) employment. A third resource, "Useful Websites for Additional Information," is also included. The "Essential Reading List" offers detailed abstracts of each publication, and includes 30 references. The "Virtual Reader Library" includes 126 briefly annotated references. The document lists 30 Web site addresses in the final section, including the American Youth Policy Forum and the National Institute for Work and Learning. (NB)
