In today’s New York Times, Emory University professor Mark Bauerlein offers a stinging criticism of the culture of higher education. He bemoans the fact that 43% of students are given As for their work (it was only 15% decades ago) and that more than 80% of students are more concerned with making money than they are with moral and worldly…[Read more]
As a Graduate Teaching Fellow and doctoral student in the Speech, Language, Hearing department at CUNY, I was assigned, in August of 2014, to teach undergraduate Anatomy & Physiology of the Speech Mechanism at Lehman College in the Bronx. Having never taught the topic before, I had to work diligently and quickly to study the chosen text, design…[Read more]
As we have discussed in class, the Futures Initiative will be hosting a two-day mentorship workshop this summer, August 18-19. This is a terrific opportunity, especially if you’d like to take on a leadership role and go deeper into the methods we’ve explored this semester.

In keeping with last week’s theme of dealing with life issue while trying to succeed at school, I thought that I would draw your attention to the great work of the Lehman College Counseling […]
I found this resource right here at Lehman College and thought that it might be of interest to you. It is not specifically for Speech and Hearing, but is for pre-med students, many of whom are […]
Wow, Irene! I think your attendance policy is extremely generous, especially since its 10% of their grade.
I give weekly quizzes that count as 30% of their grade but they get to drop the two lowest grades, which includes the missed quizzes. And I thought my class policy was generous!
Thanks for the prompt Rachel, Natalie, and Evan.
Though I’ve only been teaching at Lehman a short while (this is my second semester), it has become obvious that a great many of my students are dealing with personal issues that are causing them tremendous stress, and in some situations, seriously interfering with their ability to succeed in their…[Read more]
It takes a lot of courage to ask for help. Good for you, Ilka.
You might also post this message on the blog site. This is the group forum, where there is less activity.
