Description

Cuyamaca Open House: English and Math Corequisites in Action, Plus Accelerated ESL

As colleges have begun implementation of AB 705, many are still concerned with how the changes look in the classroom. Cuyamaca College has been working on transforming remediation since fall 2016, using high school grades for placement and offering corequisite courses for students who need support in transfer-level English and math. In addition, ESL students can go from the "false beginner" level to completing transfer-level English in as few as three semesters through the BOOST accordion model. In all three disciplines, the classroom looks very different from traditional instruction for underprepared students and English learners.

With these changes, Cuyamaca has seen substantial increases in transfer-level completion of English and math and decreases in equity gaps, and faculty are remarking that students' in-class conversations are deeper than they've ever seen.

Come see what these changes look like on the ground. This Open House will provide you with an opportunity to observe English, math, and ESL classes, ask questions, and receive guidance from faculty who are in the classroom every day.

This Open House will include:

  • Time to observe multiple corequisite and accelerated ESL courses in action
  • Q & A time with:
    • Department Chair
    • Faculty teaching courses
