Basic Skills Education: Pasadena City College's Teaching and Learning Center
Mills, Kay
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v74 n8 p33-38 Apr 2009
This article features Pasadena City College's (PCC) Teaching and Learning Center (TLC), an eight-year-old holistic approach to guiding underprepared students through math, English, and other challenges of college. TLC aims to revolutionize the way faculty look at their students and teach them. The center's approach is one that is spreading through California community colleges and across the U.S. PCC's center combines learning communities with a summer program, tutoring and counseling services, heavy faculty involvement with students, and built-in research leading to creation of new programs. Its work has yielded higher success rates for its students--a majority of whom are Hispanic--than those of the overall campus population.
