Teaching First-Year College Students is a thoroughly expanded and updated edition of Teaching College Freshmen, which has become a classic in the field since it was published in 1991. The book offers concrete suggestions about specific strategies and approaches for faculty who teach first-year courses. The new edition is based on the most current research on teaching and learning and incorporates information about the demographic changes that have occurred in student populations since the first edition was published. The updated strategies are designed to help first-year students adjust effectively to both the academic and nonacademic pressures of college. The authors also help faculty understand first-year students and show how their experiences in high school have prepared―or not prepared―them for the world of higher education.

Written in a highly accessible format, the book contains instructive commentary from both students and educators and includes a new chapter that addresses the topic of creating inclusion in classrooms and curricula. In addition, this revised edition offers information on active learning techniques, learning styles, constructing evaluation tools and assessments, and alternative teaching methods.
