High School/College Connection in I.E.


To pursue the goal of reaching more students in the entire community, this paper contains five parts. First, I shall present an overall attitude that should be taken by collegiate' directors when interacting with high school coaches. Second, I shall examine traditional ways of collegiate directors pro­moting and benefiting from high school forensics within the urban setting. Third, I offer innovative ways of approaching high school programs. Fourth, I discuss how to cope with the diversity of students a successful high school/college connection would attract to not only the major urban university, but to the forensic community at large. Finally, I offer avenues of research implied within the present study. To these ends, I shall examine the programs designed to establish and build partnerships between the University of Missouri-St. Louis Forensic Program and the St. Louis City and County schools.
