Title: The Unexpected Partnership Between Math and English: A Public Reflection
Abstract: Over the last three years, we have created freshmen learning communities centered on linking general education mathematics courses with first-year writing courses. While we expected that the students would benefit, we were surprised to find that we as faculty grew into a learning community. We will share what we have learned from one another so far and what we anticipate the future holds for this project.
