Five Approaches

extra-help1Classroom Lecture and Discussion

The traditional lecture/discussion method is used in classes that students attend twice per week (some evening and Saturday classes are offered in one-meeting blocks) to learn reading, writing, and research techniques that will give them the skills necessary to complete challenging academic assignments in college and beyond.

Computer-Assisted

One of the class’s two weekly meetings is held in the computer lab. Students use MS Word and/or other software to complete assignments both in and out of class. ENG 010, ENG 121, ENG 122, ENG 205, and RDG 011 are available in this approach. A computer lab fee is assessed.

Individualized

This is a tutorial approach to ENG 121 and 122. Students meet once per week with their instructors on a one-to-one basis to discuss reading, writing, and research assignments. This approach requires a great deal of self-discipline and is not recommended for students who are not highly motivated.

Independent Study

Students have 18 weeks to complete an eight-unit syllabus consisting of various library and essay assignments and a library research paper. Students study and complete assignments on their own, mailing each completed unit separately for evaluation and grading. An in-person final examination is required. ENG 121, ENG 122, ENG 233, and ENG 234 are available in this approach. Independent study requires a great deal of self-discipline and is not recommended for students who are not highly motivated. The Independent Study approach does not lend itself to every course. Consult with the Department Chair for more information.

Online Study

Students submit assignments, conference with classmates, and communicate with their instructor over the Internet. However, an in-person final examination is required. ENG 121, ENG 122, and ENG 226 are now offered online. This approach requires a great deal of self-discipline and is recommended only for students who are highly motivated. Not every course is available for online or hybrid delivery. Consult the course schedule.
