Special Research Column: Empathetic Genres, Empathetic Spaces, and Mentoring: Examining Contemporary Research on First-Generation College Students in First-Year Writing
Borchert, Jessica Jorgenson
CEA Forum, v46 n1 p93-135 Win-Spr 2017
This article focuses on contemporary research on first-generation college students bringing to light pedagogical interventions that can be used in the classroom to help engage and retain these students. The pedagogical interventions focus on reflective and personal writing in the classroom, creating safe spaces, and opening up opportunities for mentorship for first-generation college students. Many interventions exist for retaining first-generation college students at the university level, such as TRIO programs, but examining ways to engage these students in the classroom is also a beneficial practice.
