College Remediation

Question: How can you blunt the negative feelings about a remediation course at the college level?

Answer: Use materials from the students’ prospective field of study, including magazines, journals, and books from the field of study.

Comment: Could be difficult to manage, but if students bring materials from their field of study, might be workable. For example, a project might be developed in which students analyze a textbook, journal and magazine articles in the field, types of writing required. Sounds like an interesting idea that will need some managing. RayS.
