Brown Bag Lunch Series for First Year Students! 

The office of Student Services is sponsoring a series of lunch-time workshops designed to help in you succeed in your first semester and beyond. There is no need to R.S.V.P.  If you have questions, please feel free to contact Chris Matheny or stop by the Office of Student Services. 

I.  De-Bunking the Socratic Method
12:00 noon, Wednesday , September 23

Professors Katherine Baker, Sheldon Nahmod, and Margaret Stewart will each discuss how they use the Socratic Method.  They will also talk about what they hope to get out of using the Socratic Method, and give tips on how to prepare for Socratic questioning.  In short, they will answer the age-old question - "I've read the material, so why can't I answer the questions?" 

II.  Exam Preparation Workshop I 
12:00 noon , Wednesday, October 28

Professors Ralph Brill, Harold Krent, and Peggie Smith will talk about what students should be doing from the midpoint of the semester forward to prepare for their final exams.  This workshop will focus on building an analytical framework for complex material.  Students will be given tips on how to synthesize material, how to identify themes in classes, and how to begin organizing that material. 

III.  Exam Preparation Workshop II 
12:00 noon, Monday, November 16

Professor Susan Adams will present practical skills to assist students in writing a "good" exam answer.  She will outline these concepts using examples from several of the first year courses.  Other faculty members, including Professor Sarah Harding, will discuss their perspectives on exam grading, and will provide some exam "do's and don'ts" from past exams. 

Both day and evening division students are welcome to attend.  The workshops will be videotaped and available for checkout for those who are unable to attend.  Please see future issues of The Record for more information.
