Summary

Institutions which educate technicians should also provide pretechnical post high school programs to help underprepared students meet entry requirements of technical programs. In addition to high school dropouts, such students include high school graduates (1) who have not studied the necessary courses, (2) who have motivation toward mechanical or scientific pursuits but have not mastered organized basic studies, and (3) whose scholarship has suffered because of their employment while in high school. Success of pretechnical programs depends upon careful recruitment and screening of students, a competent faculty, and adequate counseling and guidance services. The library must be adequate to support the program, allow for programed learning, and provide a study skills library. An equipment list and cost summary for such a facility has been prepared, as have course outlines in study skills, two 1-semester mathematics courses, two 1-semester physics courses, a 2-semester chemistry course, and a 1-semester biology course. The document includes a bibliography. This document is also available as catalog no. Fs 5.280--80049 for $.45 from the superintendent of documents, U.S. Government printing office, Washington, D.C. 20402. (wo)
