Atlantic Cape Offers Workshop on Teaching Accelerated English Program

Atlantic Cape Community College will offer a one-day workshop for college educators interested in starting an Accelerated Learning Program (ALP). The ALP Summer Institute will be held Wednesday, Aug. 3, at Atlantic Cape, 5100 Black Horse Pike, Mays Landing, New Jersey.

ALP is proven to increase college success rates for students who test into remedial English. Atlantic Cape piloted its nationally recognized Accelerated Learning Program in spring 2012. ALP allows the student to bypass the second level of remedial English and go straight into college-level English while taking a support course with the same professor. The program allows students to save time by taking the courses concurrently and enabling them to begin college-level work immediately.

This workshop is for those interested in starting an ALP program at their school, those in the process of scaling an ALP program, those who teach ALP, and those who are new to ALP. The ALP Summer Institute will include an overview to ALP and Atlantic Cape’s triad model as well as sessions on:

  • The essentials of the program, including scaffolding assignments, non-cognitive issues, active learning, and integrated reading and writing
  • Best practices, assignments and activities particularly suited to ALP
  • Integrating advising into the program
  • Best practices and challenges in implementing and scaling the program

The workshop will be led by ALP faculty, and the day will provide ample opportunity for discussion. The registration fee includes lunch and all materials, including a copy of our ALP Faculty Handbook.

Registration fee is $189. Call (609) 343-5655 to register.

Atlantic Cape received the 2016 Diana Hacker Two-Year College English Association Award for Outstanding Programs in English for Two-Year Colleges and Teachers in the Enhancing Developmental Education category for the college’s Accelerated Learning Program.

College data shows 84 percent of students enrolled through ALP complete ENGL101, nearly double the completion rate of students who go the traditional route of remedial English.
