加速学习计划

2016年荣获“Diana Hacker/Two-Year College English Association (TYCA)”“促进发展教育类英语优秀项目”

 

ALP(加速学习计划)适用于全日制或兼职的学生,他们需要参加ENGL080阅读/写作II,并希望通过参加ENGL101作文I和ENGL099加速学习计划支持来加速自己的进步. Sections of ALP are available at all three campuses. Both day and evening sections are available. 要注册ALP,请参见 学术顾问.

什么是高山?

加速学习计划专注于那些将他们纳入英语080阅读/写作II的学生,旨在通过将他们纳入英语101写作I的主流课程来加速他们的进步和提高他们的成功,同时他们也参加ALP支持课程, ENGL099. 选择参加ALP课程的学生被分配到英语101的指定部分, which is composed of 9 ALP students and 11 students who placed into ENGL101. 来自两个ALP ENGL101部分的9名ALP学生被合并到一个ENGL099支持班. 这三门课程(英语101和英语099的两个部分)由同一位老师授课,共三个学分. These units of three classes are called triads. Once a week, the ALP course meets in a computer lab.

A visual representation of a triad: 

ENGL 101: 20 Students: stick figure count: 1 red, 9 green, 11 blue

ENGL 099: 18 Students: stick figure count: 2 groups with 9 green in each

20个学生图形

The green students are the ALP students, and the blue students are those who placed into ENGL101.

在高山, 辅助性课程指导学生学习大学英语水平,而不是像ENGL080那样作为课程的先决条件. 要做到这一点, ALP课程采用逆向设计, taking the goal of the course and incorporating the scaffolding students need to reach it. Here are some examples of what happens in an ALP class:

  • Scaffolding for the 101 assignments: brainstorming and other pre-writing, 写作工作坊, 草案的评论, focused revising and editing activities, 等.
  • Opportunities to practice and refine reading skills, including close and active reading.
  • Opportunities to practice and refine writing skills such as organization, development, editing, 等.
  • An introduction to the Atlantic Cape campus, services, policies, and procedures.
  • Answering student questions about the 101 class or the school generally.
  • Addressing non-cognitive issues and promoting the habits of successful students.

What are the benefits of ALP for students?

  • ALP students save time: The support course runs concurrently with Composition I, so the students do not need to take a developmental semester before entering college-level work.
  • ALP学生省钱:发展性课程和必要的大学技能共同必要的课程整合成一个单一的课程. ALP uses the 101 course materials and campus resources as the course materials; there are no additional textbooks for students to buy.
  • ALP学生可以在第一学期学习项目课程:发展性课程的学生在发展性课程完成前只能选择有限数量的课程.
  • ALP students are challenged by college-level work but receive extra support in the ALP course.
  • ALP学生可以从他们的作文I教授那里得到额外的时间和个别的指导:同一个教授同时教授作文I和ALP, enhancing the instruction in ALP.
  • ALP的学生见证了辅助性课程的好处:在大学水平的课程背景下进行补习, 而不是在它之前.

ALP students are more likely to be successful. 学生的成功数据已经证明,ALP学生比传统发展顺序的学生更有可能

  • 通过作文我,
  • 通过合成二世,
  • and return the semester following ALP

What are students saying about ALP?

Comments from past ALP students:

"ALP greatly helped my confidence in 101. 一开始, 我不知道或者认为我不知道关于阅读和写作的任何事情……ALP对于成为ag真人网家庭的一员和遇到类似水平的学生来说是很棒的……有史以来最好的课程."

 

“我觉得自己更像一个在ag真人网的学生,因为我不仅学到了英语这门课,而且学到了这所大学."

 

“我总是觉得在英语101课上我比其他孩子领先一步,就因为和同一个教授交额外的作业."

How did ALP begin at Atlantic Cape?

ag真人网的项目开始时,英语全职教员艾菲罗素了解到社区学院的巴尔的摩县(CCBC)的加速学习项目. Information about the CCBC model can be found at 他们的网站. CCBC hosts the Conference on Acceleration in Developmental Education every June. Information on this conference can be found under Conferences on their 网站.

埃菲罗素 adapted the CCBC model for Atlantic Cape by developing the triad model, 哪九个学生从每两门作文I课程组成一个单一的加速学习计划班18名学生. She piloted the program in Spring 2012, 试点的积极成果促使ag真人网开始扩大规模:将该项目扩大到所有三个校区, opening the program to more students such as part-time students, 培训更多的教员.
