September 2008 Archives

Developmental education is everywhere--at least, according to this series of articles in this week's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.  Students at colleges and universities across Western Pennsylvania are needing, and getting, help with basic and advanced courses.  Faculty are updating their teaching styles to reach a wider range of students.  I asked my basic comp students to write a paragraph on the story about lifestyle factors that can lead to college failure . . . craftily enticing them to choose this topic by showing the article's photo of college students partying hearty, as we used to say back when I did it myself. 


Here's a link to today's article on cool ways to enhance learning in particular courses; see related ones on the left-hand list.
