Teaching College Freshmen
Bette Erickson and Diane Strommer offer practical guidance to new and veteran faculty on how to most effectively teach and create academic support systems for college students in their first, most critical year. Drawing on freshman learning research, the authors examine today's first year college students to reveal the factors that can make teaching freshman so difficult and challenging - including the great diversity of their educational backgrounds and learning development, their expectations about learning, and their educational goals and values.
