As a first-year seminar professor, I attend the large dyad or triad lecture classes with my students, act as a teaching assistant and grader for the lecture class, and help my students to do the following:

    1) Explore the interconnections among the dyad/triad courses;
    2) Develop their critical thinking and information literacy skills;
    3) Clarify their personal values and goals; and
    4) Develop their ability to learn through study, discussion, cooperation, and collaboration.

As such, I view the small-class setting of the seminar as integral to developing students' critical thinking capacities and fostering a sense of community.

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."
