What is an ENGL Learning Community?

ENGL Learning Communities are two or more linked courses. Instructors in multiple classes work together to share assignments and content. Learning Community students often complete ONE assignment for TWO classes for a reduced workload! 

ENGL Acceleration

ENGL Learning Community classes offer students the opportunity to complete multiple levels of ENGL in the same quarter. At the beginning of the quarter, ENGL instructors provide students with the course objectives for each ENGL level. Then, based on student performance, students can "skip" a level through acceleration, saving both time and money! For example, all ENGL Learning Communities include students who are registered for ENGL 93, ENGL 99, and ENGL& 101 in the same class. Students are given the course outcomes for all levels and are encouraged to improve their writing skills. Halfway through the quarter, students individually meet with their instructors to discuss their progress. If a student has met the outcomes for a higher level, the instructor updates their registration to the higher level. With the acceleration option in our ENGL Learning Communities, a student can complete their English requirements faster.

I-BEST Support Class 

I-BEST students in each ENGL Learning Community meet in a small group with their support instructor for an additional three hours per week. During support class, students practice new study skills and improve their reading/writing/listening/ and speaking skills. Support classes assist students with the skills they need to be successful.
