Module 1: Creating a Community of Learners

Diversity and Classroom Management:

Recognizing Skill Levels


Community colleges accept students with a wide range of experience levels. Your students may include those with high-level industry experience as well as those who may not have been high achievers in high school.

One survey shows that 41 percent of students entering public community colleges are enrolled in one or more remedial courses. Teaching students with differing levels of math, science, and technology knowledge is a challenge faced by almost all community college teachers. But there are strategies that can help all students, regardless of their educational level, move forward in class.
