Abstract

Trying to orient undergraduate students into the teaching profession is difficult under any circumstances. After modifying instruction and adding a technology component over a three week period, students appeared more effectively engaged with the course content. The researcher concluded that instructional systems like the one used in this study are assisting instructors in improving student learning, adding another dimension to the classroom experience, and delivering effective instruction. A short overview of the Rio Grande Valley in Texas and the area’s mostly Latino population introduces this study.
