Dr. Kathleen Gabriel and Teaching Unprepared Students
Dr. Gabriel was a high school social science teacher before she became a resource specialist for students with learning disabilities. Once she moved to the university setting, she developed an academic support program for at-risk and unprepared college students and became a Faculty Development Specialist at the University of Arizona. During January’s professional development workshop, Dr. Gabriel will provide VU faculty and staff with opportunities for discussion and hands-on demonstrations for creating conditions that will enable at-risk and unprepared students to develop academically without sacrificing high standards and expectations.
