Forum, v5 Sum 1988
Designed as a forum for the exchange of ideas among California community college faculty, this journal offers a series of articles addressing instructional and administrative concerns. The volume contains: (1) "Campus Life: A Book Review," by John McFarland; (2) "The Scholar in the Two-Year College: Magritte's Mermaid or Chiron?" by Susan Petit, which addresses difficulties encountered by community college faculty in scholarly pursuits and ways administrators can minimize these obstacles; (3) "A Network for English Majors," by Mary Spangler, which describes the development of and activities sponsored by the "English Circle," an informal support network for transfer students majoring or minoring in English at Los Angeles Valley College; (4) "Interchangeable Parts," by Sandy Lydon, which looks at the trend toward standardization and conformity within the administrations of California's community colleges; and (5) "Images of Teaching and Learning in Children's Literature," by Karen Sue Grosz. The issue also includes four policy papers developed by the Academic Senate Educational Policies Committee, focusing on the adoption of the American Association of University Professors' ethics statement; the integration of critical thinking skills into the curriculum; the renewal of the California community colleges' commitment to humanities instruction; and activities and incentives for improving articulation between high schools and community colleges.
