SD 10 (Freshmen Seminar) is a one credit course that introduces students to the Kingsborough community and provides the support necessary for students to be successful during their first semester of college. Students are encouraged to explore their long term educational goals and are provided with tools and techniques to help achieve their aspirations. SD 10 is an essential component of the Opening Doors and ACE Learning Community Links.
Case Managers teach the linked SD courses in Opening Doors and Intensive ESL learning communities. They serve as academic advisors, counselors, instructors and student advocates. Case Managers teach study skills, time management and test taking strategies while providing academic advisement and support. Issues of diversity and civility are also explored in the SD courses, providing the platform for self discovery and reflection amongst students. Additionally, case managers often connect students to other important resources on campus and advocate on their behalf. The SD and linked courses are an opportunity for students to experience academic integration and critical thinking at its best.
