The Concordia Freshman English Program.
Praushitz, Walter G.
Minnesota English Journal, v1 n1 p14-20 Apr 1966
The remedies frequently adopted to solve the problems of staffing and administering an effective freshman English program have not been considered feasible or in the student's best interest at Concordia College. Recognizing the need for small classes as well as the problems and expenses of increased enrollments, the solution attempted at Concordia College consists of dividing the students into several large lecture sections and smaller discussion classes. The students attend televised lectures part of the time and work with their individual teachers the rest of the time. The results of this experiment are still tentative, but the advantages seem to outweigh the disadvantages. (BN)
