Paragraph City is my metaphor for the college classrooms I know and have known. Each one is as different as the people in the class, but they also have some things in common. I’m interested in teaching adults, what the point to it is, what the potentials are, what motivates people who sometimes succeed stunningly and sometimes work so diligently to undermine their own best efforts.
This blog is about teaching and learning at the community college. I teach English at Jamestown Community College in New York State, the western part of the state. My name is Dale Yerpe, professor of Paragraph City.
