ACLT 052: Academic Literacy--An Integrated, Accelerated Model for Developmental Reading and Writing
Hayes, Sharon Moran; Williams, Jeanine L.
NADE Digest, v9 n1 p13-22 Win 2016
The current trend in postsecondary literacy is to offer developmental reading and writing coursework in an integrated, (and in most cases) accelerated, format. This move toward integration and acceleration is definitely in line with the research literature; however, many of these new courses do not reflect the curricular and pedagogical reforms necessary for student success. This article outlines ACLT 052, an integrated, accelerated developmental reading and writing course that emphasizes critical thinking. Using an academic literacy model, this course allows students to sharpen their college-level literacy skills, while also addressing the affective barriers to their academic success. The specifics of the curricular, pedagogical and assessment practices of the course are provided, along with data demonstrating the positive impact it is having on student success.
