Partners for Success: English Alignment Project

To improve college readiness in writing, English instructors at Harper collaborated with faculty at its high school district partners to create a course for seniors who are at-risk of starting in developmental writing.  The course is aligned with Harper’s highest level of developmental writing, so students who complete the course with a grade of ‘C’ or better and choose to attend Harper will automatically be placed into college level writing with no further testing or placement procedures. The projet began small with 69 students in one of Harper’s high school partner districts offering the year-long composition course for students who are identified as likely to place into developmental writing at Harper College.   The intervention continued the following year with nearly 200 high school students  participating. The hope is that the class will be available in all partner high schools providing students with the opportunity to reduce the need for remidation at Harper College.
