Tips for Dyslexia at College

Tips for Dyslexia at College | Senior seminar | Scoop.it

It's back to school, and some of our students are making the big leap from high school to college. From this oldie-but-goodie, check out these College Tips for students with LD:

 

- Reduced Courseload
- Note-Taker (easier to get than high school)
- Study Early
- Mnemonics - memory tricks
- Weekly and Monthly Calendar for Assignments
- Flashcards (we like Flashcard Exchange or Quizlet)
- Books on Tape
- Don't Work During School Year
- Make Wise Decisions Re: Teachers and Classes


Regarding the latter: "Several of the participants also mentioned what may be labeled an 'underground network,' a system of checking with other students about professors from whome they should take classes. They tried to find professors who were fair, who would make the necessary accommodations for students with learning disabilities, and whose lectures were keyed to the assigned text. The option of selecting these professors was possible because participants attended a large university. At a smaller college, fewer choices exist."

Nowadays, students have sites like Ratemyprofessor.com and sometimes student review guides that anonymously give reviews of different profs. It also pays to see the length of reading list and required writing.

BOSTON, Dec. 2, 2013 -- /PRNewswire/ -- Today's college students and graduates are competing in an ever-expanding workforce, both here in America and on a global basis. Finding ways to differentiate themselves based solely on the technical knowledge they posses is increasingly challenging. For the hundreds of thousands of liberal arts graduates, it can be a daunting and frustrating time where successful outcomes feel remote.

(Photo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20131202/PH25055 ;)

While knowledge is certainly an important component to success, graduates can increase theircareer success through the development of a broad set of skills that will enable them to drive desired outcomes.

The best 10 skills to identify, learn and master when coming out of college are:

1)    Effective Resume Writing:  Resumes are intended to get you an interview, not a job.  They need to be written with that in mind – concise, direct and content rich.

2)    Interviewing: Understand that interviews are a two-way process. They are not limited to just answering questions. It is essential to offer succinct and direct answers rather than ramble. It is just as critical to ask questions of your own. Appearance matters. Preparation is key.

3)    Negotiating a Salary: Ideally, you want the hiring manager to decide you are the best candidate for the job before discussing salary or pay. Your chances for maximum pay will improve if you discuss compensation after you are considered the best candidate. You have skills to offer, value them.

How The Government Could Make Public College Free for All Students

How The Government Could Make Public College Free for All Students | Senior seminar | Scoop.it

Tuition at public colleges came to $62.6 billion in 2012, according to the latest government data. That’s less than what the government already spends to subsidize the cost of collegethrough grants, tax breaks, and work-study funds, which comes to about $69 billion. It spends another $107.4 billion on student loans.

 

That means that with the money it already spends to make college affordable, the government could instead subsidize public college tuition, thereby making it free for all students. This would not just mean anyone could attend a higher education institution without worrying about cost, but it could incentivize private ones to reduce their costs in order to compete with the free option.
