Summary

To change the negative attitudes of academically disadvantaged students toward school and prepare them to succeed in high school vocational programs, 27 boys were selected to participate in a 3-year activity-centered instructional program. A problem-solving approach was used for learning experiences in applied biology and agriculture, mathematics and finance control, communication, and physical education. Facilities included a land laboratory in addition to regular classrooms. Most of the students were interested in and receptive to the program. Their attendance improved, and a change in attitude toward learning and learning involvement was evident. In addition, their reading, speaking, and writing abilities improved. A curriculum guide is included which contains suggestions for administrators and teachers concerning the instructional staff, facilities, student selection, advisory committee, parental support, and the instructional program. The problem areas of the instructional program contain objectives, teacher preparation, procedural steps, and equipment. (SB)
