From the Chronicle of Higher Education, November 25, 2008
Many experts say that the United States can only truly see gains in the percentages of adults who have a college degree if colleges and universities get better at teaching students who arrived on campus unprepared for college-level work. But many professors find themselves frustrated by teaching such students â€” and many of the students drop out.
Kathleen F. Gabrielâ€™s new book is designed to help such faculty members and, ultimately, their students.
