Topic: Alternative Intervention Approaches

In response to stagnant undergraduate completion rates and growing demands for post-secondary accountability, institutions are actively pursuing effective, broadly applicable methods for promoting student success. Though much of modern practice has evolved from established theory, valuable contributions are regularly made from less formal sources. Visit the website of noted retention author Dr. Neal Raisman at http://academicmaps.blogspot.com/ and choose one entry to review and discuss. In your initial thread, provide a brief (one paragraph) summary of the entry, and then discuss whether you agree or disagree with the author’s promise, and why. Remember to provide supplemental sources to support your position. Please post the title of your chosen entry in the subject line so that other students do not use the same entry.
