In an effort to increase success and retention among developmental students, faculty at the Community College of Baltimore County developed an accelerated course that integrates Reading and English, while emphasizing critical thinking and the notion of “practicing college”. This new course, ACLT 052: Academic Literacy, is the result of a complete curricular and pedagogical redesign where authentic college-level reading, writing, and thinking tasks replace the traditional, skills-based approach to literacy instruction. To accompany her webinar session, Dr. Jeanine Williams has provided a PowerPoint Presentation and Syllabus.
