Swarat, Su; Drane, Denise; Smith, H. David; Light, Greg; Pinto, Lawrence
Journal of College Science Teaching, v34 n1 p18-23 Sep 2004
The Gateway Science Workshop is a peer-facilitated, problem-focused program designed to improve student retention in the sciences. This article discusses its development, implementation, and efficacy, which is demonstrated by higher retention of workshop students in the course sequences. Evidence suggests that the program has particular benefits for minority students. (Contains 2 figures.)
