English Program Review at Coastline Community College, Fountain Valley, California. [A Preliminary Report, October 1988.]
Yglesias, Kenneth D., Comp.; Fry, Marilyn, Comp.
Prepared as part of the program review process at California's Coastline Community College (CCC), this report describes and evaluates CCC's English Department, highlighting problems and successes from 1976 to 1987. Part I offers a narrative account of: (1) the changes that took place in the department between 1976 and 1987, focusing on early problems in estimating course enrollments, the tendency to overschedule classes, and the eventual use of faculty subject specialists to develop schedules and the curriculum; (2) recent departmental efforts to address the issues of instructional quality and student learning outcomes through a complete curriculum revision, activities to improve communication with Speech Department faculty, and the hiring of full-time faculty; and (3) plans for the future expansion of the department with the advent of a Liberal Arts Program in the Weekend College and the development of course requirements. Part II evaluates the English Department in terms of a series of quantitative and qualitative questions concerning the past, current status, and future of the department. (AJL)
