When I was a student athlete (football) at a junior college in East Texas, if we didn't go to morning study hall every morning, the coaches would make us run until we wished we were dead. But there was no scaffolding academically. Coaches moderated it. We just had to pretend to look busy. Very ineffective. I think that athletes should be supported in the same manner as the emporium model, with teachers, mentors, tutors, and academic coaches on-site.
Has anyone had any experience with Study Hall programs for Athletes? If you have, what has worked the best?
