Title: Preparing Twenty (20) Socio-economically Disadvantaged Robeson County High School Students Considering UNC System Institutions for Success on the SAT via

Computer Resources Treating Sports

Site: Computer Laboratory, Dial Humanities Center, UNCP

Dates: Ten (10) Saturday Mornings in April, May, and Early June of 2000: Thirty (30) Hours


The course will:

1) feature innovative, valid, and revealing pre- and post-testing instruments, to include SAT instruments, as well as both self-efficacy and motivation instruments.

2) develop "Video-Streaming" and E-Mail Collaboration Centers for future use;

3) provide 15 hours of SAT Verbal Section instruction and 15 of Mathematics

Section instruction, all 30 hours to involve the Internet and other software

resources related to the SAT and athletics;

4) will video-tape the 30 hours, intending to provide opportunities in the future for other students, especially those from socio-economically disadvantaged circumstances, who,

likewise, wish to consider UNC System institutions for their baccalaureate education;

5) employ on-line resources to develop "Just in Time" Learning Modules for SAT

preparation focusing entirely on sports.

Method of Student Selection: the writer of this proposal (an SAT Consultant whose doctoral

dissertation treated sports literature) will consult the Athletics Director and coaches

in Robeson County high schools to select the 20 students, 10 males and 10 females,
