"Stretch" at 10: A Progress Report on Arizona State University's "Stretch Program"
Glau, Gregory R.
Journal of Basic Writing (CUNY), v26 n2 p32-50 Fall 2007
Arizona State University's basic writing "Stretch Program" has now been in existence for more than ten years. Statistical data for nearly 8,000 "Stretch Program" students continues to indicate that the program helps a range of at-risk students succeed. This is true, also, for students from under-represented groups, who comprise roughly 40% of "Stretch Program" students. "Stretch" has been replicated at other colleges and universities, but as with any basic writing program, there are still problems and political issues that crop up and that must be dealt with. (Contains 1 table, 5 figures and 12 notes.)
