RCC Meeting Room 4


  1. Melanie James, MiraCosta College, Jacob Strona, MiraCosta College
    In response to the ineffective use and analysis of outside sources in students’ essays, I argue for a new method: Translate, Synthesis, and Connect. This method would have students start on a textual level to translate meaning, filter that meaning through the self, and then analyze how that interpretation is applicable to a larger social community.  
  2. John Goshert, Utah Valley University
    By understanding how collective authority produces and sustains knowledge and exploratory intellectual practices initiate falsification experiences through which knowledge evolves, scientific literacy provides a transportable model for students’ academic enculturation.
