What is the ENGL 093/099 Class?

The ENGL 093/099 course includes students enrolled in both ENGL 093 and ENGL 099 in one class together.

ENGL Acceleration

This course offers ENGL 093 students the opportunity to complete an additional ENGL level in the same quarter. At the beginning of the quarter, ENGL instructors provide students with the course objectives for each level. Then, based on student performance, students can "skip" a level through acceleration, saving both time and money! Students are given the course outcomes for both levels and are encouraged to improve their writing skills. Halfway through the quarter, all students 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, a student can complete two levels of English in one quarter.

I-BEST Support

English 093/099 courses have two teachers in the classroom to provide extra support and assistance to all students. There is not a separate support class for these courses.
