Harding, Kayla Gardner
MetadataShow full item record
In this study, I explore college students’ perception of their experiences in developmental reading courses, whether they feel stigma, and if said stigma discourages them from engaging in behaviors that promote retention and lead to completion. I hope the research reveals how feelings of stigma relate to help-seeking behavior among college students who are enrolled in developmental reading classes. Furthermore, conclusions in this study should suggest actions institutions, faculty, and practitioners can take to further retention among struggling college readers who experience stigma.
