“Cooling-out” adjusting your goals/aspirations/expectations
to more realistic ones . . .

 

It’s something structured into schools as representatives of
democratic institutions

Write the P section,

Will begin with QC, and introduce the quote, also introduceClark.

 

According to Burton
Clark,

 

(571)

 

FOR THE E Section:

 

PUT THE QUOTE IN YOUR OWN WORDS, paraphrase

 

–FIND key words “wide discrepancy”: between student
expectations and the reality of college: gap

–conflict: institutions expecting a lot from under-prepared
students

–means of their realization: just because different majors
or careers are out there, doesn’t mean it’s for you . . .

–“open-door”: anyone could be a student, democratic
admissions for all people

Student dreams and the reality of institutional life

 

RELATE THIS THEN TO YOUR EXPERIENCE AT QC: what about
students dreams on campus and the reality of this school
