A Study Of New Teachers' Perceptions Of Their Induction Programs, Anne Mcgeehan
Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)
Teaching is one of the few professions in which the novice is expected to perform the same responsibilities as their veteran counterparts from Day 1.

It is a time when new teachers are learning to teach and having to teach. This process can be a time of growth or a time of unease for new teachers, sometimes affecting their decisions to remain in the profession. The content ...

Linda Serra Hagedorn
Where is higher education as a field of study going in this century? How will higher education program leaders design and sustain their degree programs' vitality in the face of perennial challenges from inside and outside the academy?

Textbook Evaluation Toolkit, 2019 CUNY La Guardia Community College
Textbook Evaluation Toolkit, Christopher Mchale, Ian Mcdermott, Steven Ovadia
Open Educational Resources
In Spring 2018, the LaGuardia Community College Library department was awarded a New York State grant to train students to evaluate textbooks. The goal of the project is to give faculty tools to help students evaluate the books being used in their classes. It is not expected that all of these tools will be used in a single class, but rather that faculty will use some of these tools to determine how textbooks are working, and not working, for their students. The seminar introduced students to the economics and politics of the textbook industry and gave them tools to evaluate ...
Marginal Commentary: Are Students And Instructors On The Same Page?, 2019 Bronx Community College of The City University of New York
Marginal Commentary: Are Students And Instructors On The Same Page?, Maria Ornella Treglia
Teaching/Writing: The Journal of Writing Teacher Education
This article reports the findings of 141 student questionnaires and interviews with six teachers to investigate whether first-year students’ preferences align with their teachers’ written commentary in composition classes in an urban community college. Results show that students appreciate and rely on teacher commentary and prefer it to be clear, detailed, and supportive. They indicated that commentary that combines the message with a positive phrase works best. Teachers, on the other hand, were not aware of their students’ needs and preferences, and expressed self-doubt and frustration about their students’ reception of written commentary.
