In an attempt to help first year students / freshman and be sensitive to the cultural impact of both international students and students leaving a smaller town to venture into the ‘big city,’ I have adapted my approach to the ‘course outline.’ I have used a newsletter format in order to begin the semester on a more informal but informative note.
This Weekly Teaching Note was adapted from a contribution to the Teaching and Learning Writing Consortium sponsored by Western Kentucky University.
