This annual serial volume offers readers glimpses into learning communities, demonstrating how students are brought together for the common purpose of learning. It gives a view of the teacher as learning guide and facilitator of group discussions and activities. The articles are a primer on how to build one's own learning community. The overriding pedagogical theme is "hands-on" learning. To get a buy-in from the students, the writers unanimously call for student engagement in the learning process by having the students learn, share, and, finally, analyze, interpret, evaluate, or synthesize information. The following articles are included: "Creating Community in a Community College" (Sandra Cole); "Word Weavers" (Lynn Patriquin); "Students in Transition" (Marcel Duclos);"Bringing Home the Cows (Observation into Description)" (Paul Shykula); "Yes, You Will Use Math Again and This is Why!" (Bruce Gordon); "Images of the American Myth: An Investigation of Prime Time Television" (Paul Marashio); "Facilitating the Perseverance to Learn" (Mary Boyle); "Instructor's Guide for 'Planning Personal Health: An Experiential Course'" (Andrea G. Gordon); "The Survival of Campus Culture at a Community Technical College" (Joe Perron); and "Hidden Characteristics of Effective Community College Teachers" (Glenn DuBois.) (VWC)
