English Learning Communities

Spring 2018

*Schedule subject to change*

 

ENGLISH

Eng. 75:  This is an accelerated, integrated reading and writing course for students placing at the Eng. 70 and Eng. 80 level. This learning community is a thematic, in-depth examination of topics and issues that will impact and guide students’ academic pathway.  The assignments will focus on how reading and writing are essential to individual thinking as well as broader academic and social conversations.  Participants in this learning community will earn 6 units of non-transferable credit while preparing for success in English 98, English 103, and beyond. 

Being enrolled in an accelerated reading and writing course demands a strong commitment in order to successfully complete the requirements of each class.  Students will be expected to actively engage with their peers and their instructor in class. It is recommended that students meet in the Gateway Center or other tutoring locations to confer with the instructor, tutor, or each other. Knowing this accelerated learning community is 6 units, students should commit at least 12 to 15 hours per week for homework, including reading, writing, and studying.  

ELC 1 – Eng. 75, T, 10:30am-12:50pm; R, 10:30am-2:00pm, 6 units (Sheila Wiley) and either an appropriate non-accelerated math, Work Experience, PD and/or PE course - 24 Seats Available

 

Eng. 88: This is an accelerated 6 unit intensive writing course with a reading component; students will write four to five academic essays on the readings assigned in class.  Students must have an Eng. 80 placement level in writing and an Eng. 70 or above placement level in reading.  English 88 offers qualified students the chance to become eligible for college level composition, English 110, after one semester, provided that students attain a reading level of at least English 103.  An accelerated course requires a high level of commitment; students should reserve, on average, 12-18 hours of study time per week for this six-unit accelerated English course. Students will be expected to actively engage with their peers and their instructor in the class. The course content focuses on the individual's ability to succeed no matter what his or her life circumstances may be. The texts chosen will challenge students to reflect on their own lives and consider their own role in our diverse society.

Eng. 110/120-89: This is an accelerated 6-unit course for students with an Eng. 98 placement level in writing who have fulfilled the reading requirement for Eng. 110 (through completion of Eng. 70 or through placement). Although not required, it is recommended that students placed into Eng. 103 enroll in that course to increase their success in this learning community. Capped at just 10 total students, the two-unit, pass/no pass English 89 course helps students build community as they analyze and develop the reading and writing skills they need to succeed in English 110/120. An accelerated course requires a high level of commitment; students should reserve, on average, 12-18 hours of study time per week for this six-unit accelerated English course.

The English 110/120 course, capped at just 24 students, also supports this focus on community as, together, we discuss ideas and issues that are central to understanding current society and our place within it. Students should expect to study 8-12 hours per week for this four-unit English course. Note: it is recommended that students keep the period immediately after the lecture free so that they can meet with their instructor, their Gateway tutor, or each other as needed.
