CTL Fall Reading Group: What the Best College Students Do

This semester we'll be reading Ken Bain's What the Best College Students Do.  Bain, who also wrote What the Best College Teachers Do, focuses this time on the students themselves.  He combines research with personal interviews to identify the key attitudes that distinguish the best college students from their peers.  The question, then, is what we can do as educators to encourage and develop those key attitudes.  Come and join us for an exciting discussion about the lifeblood of our institution:  our students!

Books are provided to you for free, simply sign up for either the Tuesday or Wednesday section of the group.  You can switch back and forth between them if needed, so you won't be locked into a specific time.  The groups this year will all meet in MUC 216A:

Session 1 (Chapters 1-3):
Tuesday, September 10, 2:00-3:00pm
Wednesday, September 11, 12:00-1:00pm

Session 2 (Chapters 4-6):
