Accelerated Developmental English, Summer FOCUS Camps

The Integrated Reading and Writing I and II (ENGL 0041 and  ENGL 0042) and Paired Course (ENGL 0042/1301) were created to increase student performance and to accelerate student completion of the developmental education sequence for reading and writing.

ENGL 0041:  Integrates preparation in basic academic reading skills with basic skills in writing a variety of academic essays with a required lab. ENGL 0041 satisfies the first level of Reading and Writing for TSI.  ENGL 0042/1301 Paired Course:  Focuses on an intensive study of and practice in writing processes, from invention and researching to drafting, revising, and editing, both individually and collaboratively.  The 0042 portion meets three times weekly and fulfills TSI requirements for reading and writing. The 1301 portion meets twice weekly.  Both courses are taught by the same instructor. 

The Projected Impact for our English Acceleration Initiative is for a student who might have taken up to four semesters to transition to 1301, if successful, can complete 0041, 0042, and 1301 in two semesters.

This summer we will offer Summer Focus Camps specifically targeting TSI content allowing students who are not college ready to work on the content in which they need the most improvement.  Each day they will focus on instructor-facilitated mini-lessons and computer-based instruction targeting areas customized to their needs.  The FOCUS of the camp is for the student to advance once developmental course level or accelerate into college-ready status.  Students that qualify for the FOCUS camps are current students who have placed in developmental educations, FTIC enrolling in the Fall whose TSI, EOC, TAKS, ACT, or SAT scores do not place them into college-level courses or dual credit students or high school students that wish to qualify for dual credit courses.
