REPORT OF THE ENGLISH PROGRAM COMMITTEE.
ELMGREN, G. THEODORE, JR.; AND OTHERS
AS A RESULT OF CRITICISM BY AN ACCREDITATION TEAM, EL CAMINO COLLEGE DISCONTINUED ITS PRACTICE OF ALLOWING DEGREE CREDIT FOR ENGLISH A (A MAKE-UP COURSE) AND REQUIRED THAT ALL EXCEPT BUSINESS MAJORS HAVE ENGLISH 1A PROFICIENCY. PLANS WERE THEN BEGUN TO DEVELOP AN INTERMEDIATE, NON-TRANSFER COURSE THAT WOULD SATISFY THE AA DEGREE REQUIREMENTS BUT WOULD NOT DISCOURAGE THE TERMINAL STUDENT. ENGLISH 1A FOCUSES ON RESEARCH, TERM PAPERS, AND CLASSICAL LITERATURE, BUT THE NON-TRANSFER STUDENT NEEDS TECHNICAL REPORT WRITING AND READING IN TECHNICAL AND BUSINESS JOURNALS. AFTER EXAMINING THE ENTIRE ENGLISH PROGRAM, THE COMMITTEE PROPOSED THE INTRODUCTION OF ENGLISH 2A (FUNCTIONAL READING AND WRITING), OF ENGLISH R (BASIC READING), AND OF A STUDY SKILLS CENTER TO TREAT DEFICIENCIES. THEY ALSO ASKED FOR CHANGES IN ELIGIBILITY AND PLACEMENT TESTING. AFTER SUCH CHANGES WERE INITIATED, THEY FELT THAT THE ENGLISH REQUIREMENT FOR AN AA DEGREE WOULD BE FULFILLED BY COMPLETION OF ENGLISH 2A, ENGLISH 1A, OR BUSINESS ENGLISH AND THAT THE STUDENT WOULD HAVE A WIDER CHOICE OF COURSES IN COMPLETING THE 6-UNIT REQUIREMENT.
