Apply to the Community of Practice in Acceleration!

CAP_LogoAn Extended Professional Development Program for Faculty Teaching in Accelerated English and Statistics Pathways.

California community colleges are leading a national movement to replace long, remedial sequences in reading, writing, and mathematics with redesigned accelerated pathways. As illustrated the recent LearningWorks brief, “Toward a Vision of Accelerated Curriculum and Pedagogy: High-Challenge, High Support Classrooms for Underprepared Students,” this kind of reform can involve significant changes to classroom instruction. That’s why 3CSN and the California Acceleration Project offer a year-long program supporting faculty to teach in new accelerated pathways. The program includes three in-person workshops, ongoing coaching, access to rich instructional materials, and the chance to learn from a statewide network of innovative faculty. 42 California community colleges have participated to date, and early results from an evaluation by the RP Group show dramatic gains in students’ completion of college-level English and Math. Students in accelerated statistics pathways were 5.6x more likely to complete a rigorous, college-level course. In English, students in accelerated courses that enabled them to enroll in college English the next term were 2.1x more likely to complete the college course.
