Transcript Endowments Help Fund Teaching Programs The College of Education's $2.1 million in endowments helped fund the college's research, although budget cuts diminished funds for some projects. Research projectswere the Detecting Reading Problems Program and the Teachers for Tomorrow project in association with the Bridge Program. The Detecting Reading Problems projects suffered substantially from the recent budget cuts. The program aimed to identify reading problems and learning difficulties in children who were in danger of failing, said Barbara Foreman, Ph.D., associate professor of Educational Psychology. The research involved collecting data on 900 kindergarten and first-grade William Georgiades Dean-College of Education students in the Alief school district. Individual testing of the children served as a gauge to recognize at-risk students. The Teachers for Tomorrow project encouraged future educators to spend time in an elementary or middle school as an alternative to teacher certification courses. "Students will have a chance to experience what teaching is all about and at the same time learn the theory of teaching, We're integrating teaching with theory," said Robert Houston, Ph.D., associate dean of education. -Scherilynlshop Engineering students help each other prepare for a final exam.

Agency Grants Fund Research Projects Although the college of Engineering received about $7.4 million in 1992 for research projects, this support was not free, said Charles Dalton, associate dean of engineering. Governmental and private agencies funding UH engineering research projects expect results, he said.
