Event description

Description

See descriptions below for workshop information. There are separate sessions for math, ESL, and English faculty.

English: As AB 705 brings a more heterogeneous population of students into College English, it is more important than ever to help students feel that they belong in our classrooms and have the capacity to succeed. How can we do this? This workshop will explore ways to communicate a sense of belonging through class policies, activities, assignments, and feedback that help students feel more connected and be more likely to persist and succeed.

Math: As AB 705 brings the vast majority of students directly into transfer-level math, our math programs are undergoing a huge transformation. How do we support students and each other as we make this transition? This day-long workshop will focus on pedagogy and classroom practices that support all students to be successful. We will also hear from early implementers of AB 705 reforms. Workshop activities are relevant to both Business/STEM and Statistics/Liberal Arts Math.

ESL: How do we ensure that English learners don’t get lost in the shuffle of AB 705 implementation? This workshop will review recent, statewide research collected by the AB 705 ESL Work Group and focus on specific placement and curriculum models that protect ESL students’ rights to English language instruction and support while also maximizing their probability of transfer-level English completion. Participants will work in teams to develop plans suited to their own institutional contexts.
