We will discuss several teaching challenges at this session. Some are issues that all instructors face, and others are more specific to teaching at a community college.
  • IN PREPARATION, consider how you would address the following challenge: Several students in your class are performing very well, with “A” averages, while several other students are failing and struggling to keep up. How do you cope with these disparate abilities in a single class?
