Co-Requisite Remediation in English and Math

Get a jump start on developing your own courses before the fall curriculum deadlines!

Nationally and in California, colleges are seeing dramatic gains when they replace traditional remedial courses with co-requisite models in which students enroll directly in transferable, college-level math and English with additional support. 

Under AB705 (currently being considered by the California legislature), community colleges would need to replace most traditional remedial courses with co-requisite models. A similar policy has just been announced by the CSU. 

These day-long workshops will provide an introduction to co-requisite remediation, with data, hands-on activities, and guidance from faculty already implementing these approaches in California community colleges. There will be separate workshops for English and math faculty.

Build a campus plan for implementing new approaches to placement & remediation in English, reading, ESL, and math

With AB705 on the horizon, and changes in CSU policies, the landscape for remediation is changing in California. Changes to placement and remediation are producing dramatic gains in student completion of transfer-level English and math.

This two-day workshop will support colleges to design and develop new approaches, including new placement policies, co-requisite models of remediation, and teaching with high-challenge, high-support pedagogy.
