    Hi Erin,

    This is excellent!  I look forward to learning what the survey results tell you.  I love the festive CATS title too.  Thank you for sharing!

    Chris came to me with this idea in Spring 2019, so we tried it.  I could not believe how successful this study session was with the exam results.  We showcased this as a "party" and had fun with the idea.  Students who had never shown up for a study session before came to this.  Like Chris said, historically, the passing rate of this is poor (each semester varies, but the average passing rate is about 65% of the students).  I loved seeing 10-15 students standing around the room at white boards, working together during their personal time.  It was a great collaboration with the tutoring center.

    Hi Erin -- This is great. I can actually totally see using this in conjunction with introducing a new unit/module as well, especially since sometimes students get nervous about things they have not really learned before. Like Stace, I do believe I will be using your idea....

    Thank you Erin.   I love this support structure.  I can certainly reinforce this and make connections in my RDG courses.  In my Reading Improvement class we were just discussing 'previewing of texts' as a reading strategy---It engages prior experience, asks them to think about what they already know about the subject matter, the author, or publication.  They can then anticipate what new information might be ahead for them when they return to read the text more closely.
