Nov 1st: 2019 Fall Forum on Teaching and Learning: Bandwidth Recovery: Helping Students Reclaim Cognitive Resources Lost to Poverty, Racism, and other “Differentisms”
The cognitive resources for learning of many of our students have been and are being diminished by the negative effects of persistent economic insecurity and discrimination and hostility against non-majority groups based on race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation or gender identity, and other aspects of difference. Recognizing that these students are no different than their peers in terms of cognitive capacity, we can implement strategies and interventions – in and outside the classroom - that show promise in helping students regain the cognitive resources to be successful in college.
At this event, participants will learn about and practice several interventions designed to help students recover bandwidth, beginning with a strengths perspective about what skills and abilities they are bringing to the table – “funds of knowledge.” The interventions include values affirmation, connecting the known to the unknown, growth mindset and neurobics, and high-hope syllabi.
Have you fallen behind, become overwhelmed and feel anxious and paralyzed about schoolwork? Have you stopped attending classes?
The Academic Success Center "Get Unstuck" program is for you. Students meet one-on-one with a counselor to work on developing executive functiong skills, managing anxiety and other strategies that will help you become more successful for the remained of this quarter and beyond.

Undergraduates are encouraged to consider CSS 201:Deconstructing the School-to-Prison Pipeline when planning their Winter course schedule.
The course focuses on the intersection of education and incarceration, which is often referred to as the School-to-Prison Pipeline. We will look at the perceived linear relationship of school to prison, or of how specific types of educational experiences lend themselves to increased risks of criminal activity and incarceration. We will also look at the potential of schools as centers of community involvement and of education (both formal and informal) as a motivator of emancipatory action. This includes looking at how different communities, with a particular focus on those in Chicago, respond to local, state, and national educational policies that feed into and promote the School-to-Prison Pipeline metaphor.
Offered on Fridays from 9 to 12, classed will be held at the Cook County Correctional Facility
