A publication of University 101 Programs, University of South Carolina
Designed by the University 101 staff and campus partners at the University of South Carolina, this resource manual provides instructional faculty with a how-to guide for designing, managing, teaching, and evaluating student work in the first-year seminar. The manual includes a detailed discussion of course management that offers suggestions for working with first-year students, designing a syllabus, establishing grading policies, building community in the classroom, and working with a peer leader. Chapters on topics common to first-year seminars offer resources for students, suggested assignments, and classroom activities. Presented on a CD-ROM, the materials can be adapted for particular campus contexts.
