6 can’t write a thesis no concrete examples sentence fragments confusing words subject-verb agreement mla format when we asked students...They told us “none of the above”

7 eviction car trouble changes at work financial problems abusive situation at home medical problems problems with children laid off legal problems life issues student becomes discouraged student becomes depressed student feels isolated student loses confidence stress becomes too great student fears she isn’t “college material” affective issues

18 ENG 101ENG 052 ALP ALP The Accelerated Learning Program encourages cohort effect changes attitude toward developmental course allows individual attention allows time for non-cog issues allows coordination of the two courses reduces stigma improves attachment provides stronger role models

19 How does an ALP developmental class differ from a traditional one? Goal of an ALP developmental course: ALP The Accelerated Learning Program. for students to pass the developmental course and be ready for first-year composition. for students to pass first-year composition course. Goal of a traditional developmental course:

20 Conducting class as a writing workshop, an extension/supplement to the 101 class Answering questions left over from the 101 class Providing opportunities for more writing practice, short papers to reinforce concepts from the 101 class or prepare for upcoming assignments in the 101 class Discussing/brainstorming ideas for the next essay in 101 Reviewing drafts of essays the students are working on for 101 Working on reducing the frequency and severity of error in the students’ writing Addressing non-cognitive issues (life issues, affective issues) What do we do in the ALP 052 class? The goal for ALP 052 instructors: Maximize the ALP students’ probability of success in the ENGL 101 class. Strategies include: ALP The Accelerated Learning Program
