Video Description: Explore conditions that foster a learning community environment. Students see the benefits of this kind of synergy.

 

Question/writing prompt:  What factors help students build academic confidence? What aspects of the learning community appeal to you?

 

In-class activities:

1. Easing Transition Objective: Students gain some familiarity with learning communities.

 

Show the video from 0:56 to 1:10.  Have students identify reasons why learning communities help individuals acclimate and transition to college.  Write the ideas on the board. Discuss.

 

2. Academic Benefits Objective: Students learn about the benefits of learning communities.

 

Show the video from 1:10 to 1:24.  In groups, ask students to identify how students benefit academically from learning communities. If your students are participating in a learning community, ask them to share specific examples of such benefits. Then, come up with two ways that these benefits could be replicated on campuses without formal learning communities.
