Capitol Ballroom 6
Dr. Young Mee Oh, Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology;
Professor Rodney Dash, Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology
Accelerated Learning Program (ALP) is generating promising results, but the research on ALP is limited. The current research was conducted to observe the effects of ALP on academic achievement and attitudes of developmental mathematics students at a Hispanic-serving college. The results suggest positive effects of ALP on developmental mathematics students.
Integrated Reading and Writing
Capitol Ballroom 7
Peter Adams, Community College of Baltimore County
A presentation on organizing a reading/writing course around a few extended projects involving multiple readings, several short writings, much small group discussion, and other activities. The project approach allows students to become immersed in a topic for an extended time and, thereby, to produce much more thoughtful essays. Several sample projects will be described, and participants will be asked to begin developing a project of their own.
