This document was compiled by Butte College faculty members Lisa Kekaha (Reading), Julie Withers (Sociology), and Miya Squires (Learning Assistance) in January 2009. The list was distributed at faculty development workshops during spring 2009 to support ongoing development of teaching strategies that best support student success with a focus on basic skills students.
About the Poppy Copy: "This document was compiled by a project team of the Center for Student Success (CSS) of the Research and Planning (RP) Group of the California Community Colleges, under contract from the California Community Colleges (CCC) System Office, with the support of USA Funds. The authors . . . surveyed published literature and other sources to compose this document, which was then reviewed by members of the faculty review panel identified below. In addition, we are grateful for review and assistance provided by Dr. Carole Bogue-Feinour, Vice-Chancellor of Academic Affairs, CCC System Office, and Dr. John Nixon, Vice-President of Instruction, Mt. San Antonio College."
