Facilitating Student Learning through Contextualization: A Review of Evidence
Perin, Dolores
Community College Review, v39 n3 p268-295 Jul 2011
This is a review of evidence for contextualization, defined here as an instructional approach connecting foundational skills and college-level content. Two forms of contextualization are identified, "contextualized" and "integrated" instruction. Despite methodological limitations, the available studies suggest that contextualization has the potential to accelerate the progress of academically underprepared college students.
