Book Overview

These students are surprised to find that college coursework demands so much more of them than high school. For the first time, they are asked to think deeply, write extensively, document assertions, solve non-routine problems, apply concepts, and accept unvarnished critiques of their work.

A Guide to Teachers and to the College Bound

This book really has two goals. It's original and main intent is aimed at high school teachers who are preparing students for college. In this vein it addresses what should be tought to students and how they should be taught. The second goal is how to take whatever high school education a young person has and from this foundation prepare the student for what college is going to be like. Unfortunately the taking of the college preparatory curriculum in most high schools does a fairly poor job of actually preparing students for surviving in the college environment. Perhaps the knowledge the student has in math, english, or whatever is adequate. But there is still the lack of involvement on the teachers part, particularly in the large survey type classes of a hundred plus students with a TA doing the teaching. Combine this with the faster pace, the increased requirements for homework, and the outside influences away from home and the potential is there for significant problems. This book is a more basic guide than many of the college review type books that merely list some attributes of dozens of colleges. This is a guide on how to succeed rather than how to pick a college.
