Picturing Academic Probation

On the first day of USTD 1101: Strategies of Learning, an 8 week college course designed to help students on academic probation obtain successful learning habits, I asked these 19 students to write for about 5 minutes on their thoughts, feelings, and attitudes about being on probation and having to take this course.

I then asked them to draw a picture that reflected in some way what they had written.

In the slides above (best viewed in full screen) are some of those drawings.  I’d be interested in hearing you thoughts on and how you would interpret these drawings.  Comment below.
