- Peter Adams
Author at Community College of Baltimore CountyPeter Adams is the creator of and nation's leading expert on the Accelerated Learning Program (ALP) and a passionate advocate for updating the current structure of developmental education in America to help more students succeed. As a teacher at the Community College of Baltimore County, Peter saw the opportunity to improve success rates among students placed in developmental writing courses, and so he created and developed the ALP model to meet that need. Peter spent eight years teaching ALP and an additional seven years training faculty across the country on how to implement the ALP model. As of 2017, more than 300 schools in 20 states offer sections of ALP and 7 states have adopted the model statewide. Through his deep experience with the course, its students, and its instructors, Adams truly understands the challenges of this course and is uniquely qualified to author The Hub. Peter's professional experience includes tenure with the editorial board of the Journal of Basic Writing and leadership positions with the Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC). His two influential articles "Basic Writing Revisited" (Journal of Basic Writing, 1993) and "The Accelerated Learning Program: Throwing Open the Gates" (Journal of Basic Writing, 2009) were both major catalysts for the nationwide movement toward mainstreaming basic writers.
