Few colleges in the nation are not only concerned with their retention rates as an institution, but also retention in degree programs and individual classes. Many reasons are given as to why students leave college from financial problems, to learned helplessness, to apathy, to self-esteem and motivation issues, to family problems, to lack of academic preparedness. The classroom is one of the most important places where the academic community can have positive effects on students in relation to retention. Amy, Steve, and Robb have developed this practical compilation, Engaging Activities for Retention, as an indispensable, hands-on resource for educators to address the topic of retention. This booklet will empower teachers, professional development coordinators, coaches, and administrators with tools to actively engage in their classes. They are confident you will find these activities as useful as they have with their students.
