Burns, Charles A., Ed.
Ten articles by community college faculty of the State University of New York on instruction-related topics make up this annual publication. First, Harold Cantor argues that the future of community colleges hinges on the development of a cadre of generalists who will foster general education. After the Life Skills Program of Rockland Community College is described by Barbara Viniar in terms of its application of adult development theory, Nancy Jacobs Grossman reviews student activities programs in light of curriculum structure. Next, Robert H. Gould examines the cooperative education program of Tompkins Cortland Community College. Following Shirley Lim's discussion of writing poetry as a means of teaching poetry, the barriers to the integration of foreign students into the social structure of a community college are examined by Howard C. Himelstein. Next, Ann Catalano-Broughton considers career guidance for the media major, and Joan Silberman describes a structural approach to teaching English composition. After a course revision process for reading/study skills courses is explained by Diane Creel and Marlene Blumin, Harold Ettelt reviews the bibliographic instruciton program at Columbia-Greene Community College.
