Assessment

and Goals:

The goal of this course is to allow our students to gain more experience in the classroom and to refine their own skills by helping run review sessions, lead discussions or help with an instructor's research.

 

The student will write a short paper to reflect on his or her own strengths that emerged during this experience, as well as on the areas in which he or she could improve. The students will also be graded on their professionalism in the classroom and in their dealings with other students.

Rationale for

Changes or

Exceptions:

WE CURRENTLY EMPLOY SOME WORKSTUDY STUDENTS AS TEACHING ASSISTANTS IN OUR COURSES. WE WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND THIS OPPORTUNITY TO OTHER STUDENTS WHO MAY NOT BE WORK STUDY ELIGIBLE, BUT WHO WOULD CONTRIBUTE GREATLY TO THE CLASSROOM ENVIRONMENT AND WOULD STAND TO BENEFIT FROM SUCH AN EXPERIENCE.
