Michelle called our attention to a recent New York Times article about the growing need for remediation within CUNY, “CUNY Adjusts Amid Tide of Remedial Students.” If you did not have a chance to read it yet, check it out here. I know that Charles is planning to teach a developmental course in the fall semester as his Gen-Ed-enhanced course. Is anyone else teaching a developmental course as part of the Title V program in the fall? The article reminds me to consider the role of developmental courses in the First-Year Experience, since many students begin their coursework with multiple zero-credit courses. What does it mean to be considered a first-year student who has actually been a City Tech student for more than a semester already?
