Transfer to Success.
Kremen, Phyllis G.
The developmental college reading course at Seton Hall University has a traditional emphasis on literal, evaluative, and critical reading instruction. The course also has the objective to enable students to carry from the course the skills to be successful and confident in other reading intensive courses. "Transfer days" are thus begun; students bring textbooks from their most difficult courses, write "strategies" in class for attacking these books, and then take the completed strategies to peer response groups which test the strategies. Students get over their insecurities concerning reading intensive courses, feel they are in charge of their own learning experience, and enjoy this fresh approach to learning study skills. (RS)
