First Year Self-Evaluation.doc - this useful tool, adapted from a similar resource at Lawrence University, allows for a structured conversation with your student in his/her first semester at Grinnell. Often advisers seek to "check in" with their Tutees, but aren't sure what questions to ask or how to get the conversation going. This document requires the student to reflect on their first few weeks at Grinnell, and provides you (as the adviser) with a concrete way to direct the student in a productive manner. Further, this can be used to facilitate a conversation about liberal education -- what it is and how the student is going about crafting a liberal education for him/herself. Please contact the Academic Advising Office x3702, for other hints on how to use this resource.
