Facilitator's Manual: Summer Transitions. Fifth Edition.
Kuenzli, Linda A., Ed.
A facilitator's manual for the Summer Transition Enrichment Program at Bowling Green State University is presented. The overall objectives of the program are: (1) to facilitate the transition of entering freshmen into the academic and cultural life of the university; and (2) to assist students in their personal growth and adjustment to the academic demands of the university. Objectives, activities, and desired outcomes of each of the 16 sessions of the program are identified, along with materials and assignments. The sessions include: the purposes of going to college; the meaning of personal freedom; mapping skills; support services; skimming, memory, and concentration; proofreading, written communication, and motivation; time management and academic advisement; listening skills and notetaking; library usage, using textbooks, and marking the text; how to study, studying special subjects, and improving reading skills; taking exams; issues facing college students; and bridging the gap between the world of self and the world of knowledge. Suggestions for session planning, grading guidelines, and information on team teaching are included. The purpose of student journals is also considered. Much of the manual consists of guides or self-tests for students to monitor themselves. (SW)
