Summary

Described is the Complete Help and Assistance Necessary for a College Education (C.H.A.N.C.E.) Program established at Northern Illinois University for minority students who had not met the traditional admission standards of ACT score and class rank. Instead, these students were selected on the basis of their motivation, their leadership, and recommendations. Components of the program include a special nine-hour block of courses in speech, reading, and English utilizing team teaching; a skills center staffed by upper division tutors (which also served as a resource center with supplementary materials); and video tape playback equipment to allow the tutors to discuss taped classroom performances. A special grading system was devised to help build self-concept, and course materials were presented at a slower pace. Small class size and personal attention provided by the instructor also increased self-confidence. Additional skills developed include test-taking skills, vocabulary, speech skills, and library skills. (HOD)
