Classrooms as Communities: Exploring the Educational Character of Student Persistence.
Tinto, Vincent
Journal of Higher Education, v68 n6 p599-623 Nov-Dec 1997
Data from study of a learning community program in an urban community college are used to explore the educational character of student persistence. Analyses reveal that classroom activities influence persistence by changing the way students and faculty interact within and beyond the classroom. Implications for current theories of persistence are discussed and a modified theory proposed. (Author/MSE)
