All Hands on Deck: Involving the Entire Faculty in Teaching Basic Skills.
Fassler, Barbara
The English department at Central College (Pella, Iowa) has implemented a program that involves the entire faculty in the development of students' basic skills. The program's support system for students and faculty includes the following components: a skills laboratory staffed by a full-time skills coordinator and by trained student tutors selected by faculty members in all disciplines; inservice workshops to help faculty members develop students' basic skills in content-area courses; frequent written and oral communication with faculty members to obtain their suggestions for the program; and systematic record keeping to keep track of the skills development of each student. The entire faculty assumes responsibility in two ways for the development of students' basic skills: by structuring skills development into their courses and by insuring that all students reach a certain minimum level of competence before graduation.
