January 2013
    • Center for the First Year Experience 2601 Gentilly Boulevard New Orleans, LA 70122 Office: 504.816.4918 Fax: 504.816.4863Dear Dillard Faculty and Staff: As you know, a student’s first year of college is an exciting time to stretch ones wings, make newfriends and pursue the path to adulthood. However, with so many changes all at once, students frequentlyencounter a great amount of stress during their first year. Many students cope successfully with thepressures encountered in college, but some find themselves overwhelmed by the academic demands andthe constraints placed on their time and energy. The Center for the First Year Experience has compiled this comprehensive Resource and ReferralGuide to address the needs of first-year students. All first-year students and their families have received acopy of this guide. Because the challenges of adjusting to college life typically interfere with a student’sacademic performance and/or social interactions, faculty and staff are often in good positions to recognizestudents who are in distress. Many of these students have not sought the help needed and may be unawareof the resources available to them. You will not be able to identify every distressed student nor will everystudent you approach be willing to accept your assistance. However, communicating your interest andconcern to such a student may play an important role in helping the student to solve problems that areinterfering with their academic survival and success. With this guide you will be able to encourage them toseek the help needed to be successful and happy their first year. Remember, the first year matters!Thanks,The Center for the First Year ExperienceFaculty and Staff

When reading to learn, follow four basic steps: 1. Figure out the purpose for reading. Activate background knowledge of the topic in order to predict or anticipate content and identify appropriate reading strategies. 2. Attend to the parts of the text that are relevant to the identified purpose and ignore the rest. This selectivity enables students to focus on specific items in the input and reduces the amount of information they have to hold in short-term memory. 3. Select strategies that are appropriate to the reading task and use them flexibly and interactively. Your comprehension improves and their confidence increases when they use top-down and bottom-up skills simultaneously to construct meaning.Check comprehension while reading and when the reading task is completed.
