Activities of CARP
Wednesday Assemblies provide students with a view of the internal systems within the college from Academic Affairs to Religious Emphasis. These Chapel services highlight important information for sustaining the legacy, providing historical knowledge, and connecting to the Tougaloo spirit of academic excellence.
Friday Forums provide information regarding financial, academic support, personal support and personal resources to aid students academically, emotionally, and financially as they transition into a stabilized college life. These forums are group interactive, as well as individual hands-on.
Mission: Involvement engages young minds into thinking about your learning style and the Discovery Wheel, a valuable assessment for your special abilities, especially your intellectualism. Becoming A Master Student by Dave Ellis prepares you to enter your sophomore year fully ready and able to explore the world of academia through the Four Modes of Learning (Why?, What?, How? and What if?), note taking strategies and understanding your goals, attitude and the importance of a good support system.
Reading/Study Skills allows you to fully develop your reading comprehension skills. This is done by reflecting, engaging, and assessing your knowledge of vocabulary, main ideas, understanding literary devices and graphics, and author's thought patterns, as well as becoming a prolific writer though your literary responses.
Labs provide support in Reading, Writing, Math and Foreign Language. These labs are part of the courses: English, Reading, Math and Language offered to freshmen. Although the services are provided for students enrolled in the course, the Reading Lab can be used by students who have completed the requirements or who need support for a specific content area, especially since WordSmart and Progressive Reader are included.
