In-Service Work with Community College Teachers.
Gere, Anne Ruggles
Within the last 20 years, community colleges have increased and have redefined themselves and their purposes. This paper discusses the relationship of graduate schools and community colleges and describes an in-service seminar that was conducted by two university faculty members for English teachers at a nearby community college. The seminar focused on language and defined the following six general topics for discussion: styles of learning, scope of language, nature of literacy, students' confidence in their own use of language, critical thinking processes, and evaluation of language development. Student responses during the seminar showed that attitude changes--willingness to see things a new way--are essential to teaching (students or teachers) in a two-year college. (JM)
