9 Triad Model Advantages Students Merging from two sections of Engl101 allows students to compare academic experiences. Larger class size fosters class discussion, creates a typical classroom environment, and allows for more diversity among the students. Faculty Merging from two sections of Engl101 allows for authentic discussions of the diversity of the student experience. Scheduling is easy: two days, three classes in a row; a full load for adjuncts; 9 credits total is 3/5 of a full-time load. Administration Class size is comparable to the developmental course.

10 Triad Model Challenges Students Gaps can make the course schedule inconvenient. Faculty Reaching every student individually in a single class session is difficult. Two Engl101 experiences must be united. Coordinators Triads are complicated and difficult to schedule. Finding and training faculty can be difficult, especially part-time faculty.

11 ALP Syllabus Student Learning Outcomes/Objectives, similar to ENGL101 syllabus, with important additions: Students will learn the value of being an active participant in a learning community: how to prepare for/attend classes; actively participate; respectfully/responsibly interact with learners; ethically collaborate/study for other classes. Students will choose a program path for the next two years, study the schedule in the tabloid, make effective decisions for scheduling an academic semester. Students will discuss the pros and cons of shortened summer semesters and of online classes. Students will become familiar with the college culture: make use of available and appropriate resources; meet with the instructor to discuss individual program; learn about essential services/procedures for registration and about extracurricular activities; etc.

12 Curriculum Planning First day of each week: discuss questions from previous week in 101 and/or reading/writing concerns from other classes. Instructor consideration: What should be reinforced in both 101 class and in ALP? What should be addressed in only ALP? Design “just in time” exercises/group activities within learning communities. Sometimes student-generated concerns supersede planned activities. Active learning; NOT drill and practice. Personalize/contextualize learning for ALP students.

13 A Sample Week English 101 Day 1––Start The Alchemist. Read “The Prologue.” Discuss the four obstacles Coelho identifies. Discuss vocabulary terms (alchemist; narcissist). Discuss the Myth of Narcissus. Discuss age/characteristics of the protagonist (Santiago). Discuss geographical context for novel. Day 2––Review Paper #1 options. Review MLA style. Lecture/powerpoint and/or discussion and inductive activity. ALP Day 1 In-class writing: “What is your personal legend? How will you achieve it? What obstacles might deter you?” Preview next day’s reading. Day 2 (computer lab) Generate MLA (and APA) citations for three sources (article, movie, novel), using a style guide or online citation generator (Knight Cite).

14 Career Infusion Academic Support Services Student Affairs Curriculum & Faculty 14

15 Why Career Development? Helps students identify goals Empowers students to take ownership of those goals Enables informed decision making Connects education to goals Supports Atlantic Cape’s ALPs Learning Outcomes Computer and Information literacy Familiarity with college resources Retention goals Strengthens connection to college and to instructor

16 Initial Activities Collaborated with Vice President of Student Affairs Visited class Conducted Values Clarification Activity Writing Assignment: reflection piece on the experience Added benefits: Connected students with Student Affairs personnel Students were given preparatory information for registration

17 Follow-up Activities Took Holland Career Codes Quiz Researched using Occupational Outlook Handbook Writing Assignment: connection of goals/values with career choices
