College students, especially first-year students, often feel isolated on campuses. The degree to which they feel a sense of place and find a way of fitting in determines how well they perform. Higher Learningoffers "inside" stories of college life and university culture, addressing the difficult issues that students face in their transition to college. It also provides students and teachers a vehicle to explore, reflect on, and perhaps even discover issues about ethnicity, class, age, gender, and sexual diversity. Features include: Quality readings written by both students and professionals Critical thinking points for each of the readings Recommended filmsSee, Patti is the author of 'Higher Learning Reading and Writing About College', published 2005 under ISBN 9780131141636 and ISBN 0131141635.
