Community College Students' Opinions Regarding the Value of their Freshman Seminar Experience.
Rhodes, Lauren; Carifio, James
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v23 n5 p511-23 Jul-Aug 1999
Reveals that randomly grouping students with wide-ranging levels of academic abilities and life experiences in a freshman seminar class had a number of drawbacks. Suggests that older adults need a different kind of freshman seminar course than the traditional first-year student, and that "gifted" older students might be used to provide "on-campus apprenticeships" for other first-year students. Contains 13 references. (VWC)
