Adjunct Classes: Organizing Resources for High Risk Students.
Harding, Ida B.
The University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire has attempted to solve the problem of underprepared freshmen by offering adjunct classes to freshman level content courses. Currently ten adjunct classes in seven departments are taught and are used to integrate the teaching of learning and study skills into the teaching of the regular course content. Two extra class sessions per week are required of students in the adjunct courses. The courses are usually team-taught by two instructors--the departmental instructor who normally teaches the course and a learning specialist in reading, writing, or mathematics, depending on the requirements of the course. Academic support services are also offered at the academic skills center in the college, and there is a special advising component for disadvantaged students, minority students, and older returning students.
