An Innovative Community College Program Integrating the Fundamentals of Reading and Writing with a College Level Introductory Psychology Course.
Sherman, Debora C.
A program for low-achieving students at a Connecticut community college involves one course combining the fundamentals of reading and writing, which is taught in conjunction with a college-level, introductory psychology course. This program is based on four assumptions: that adult learners can gain critical consciousness within a literacy program, that academic faculty can learn to teach nontraditional students effectively, that literacy skills should be taught together, and that reading and writing can be taught together with an academic course (in this case, introductory psychology). Through the structured coordination of courses, students make use of their abilities to think, learn, and communicate. (JM)
