An article that I wrote, "Increasing Students' College-Level Vocabulary by Collaborating with Faculty," may be of interest to you.  It can be accessed at https://www.jstor.org/stable/42802420?seq=1#metadata_info_tab_contents

I've worked with many freshmen who didn't fully understand what they were assigned to read because of their limited word knowledge.  Some students also have inaccurate or incomplete lecture notes because they don't understand some of their professor's words.  And limited word knowledge may hinder students' ability to fully and clearly express their ideas in writing.

My article suggests ways that learning assistance professionals can work with faculty to help students acquire a college-level vocabulary.

Good afternoon,

 

My director wants to do professional development over the summer where we read journal articles related to the profession and discuss them. Can anyone recommend a good 7-10 page article?

 

Thanks!
