As a first-year seminar professor, I attend the large dyad or triad lecture classes with my students, act as a teaching assistant and grader for the lecture class, and help my students to do the following:

    1) Explore the interconnections among the dyad/triad courses;
    2) Develop their critical thinking and information literacy skills;
    3) Clarify their personal values and goals; and
    4) Develop their ability to learn through study, discussion, cooperation, and collaboration.

As such, I view the small-class setting of the seminar as integral to developing students' critical thinking capacities and fostering a sense of community.
