LCs for Incoming Freshmen in need of​English language support

Take ​a two-semester ESL learning community which links English courses (ESL 101 & ENG 1050) with the First Year Seminar (SD 10), Speech, and your choice of Psychology, Sociology, or History. These learning communities also include two additional hours of Supplemental Instruction to help students with integrative assignments.

For example...

Culture and Contexts
This learning community links English as a Second Language (ESL 101), with Popular Culture in America (HIS 21), Listening and Speaking Skills (SPE 11), an Integrative Language Seminar (ENG 1050), a Freshmen Seminar (SD 10), and Supplemental Instruction. Students are asked to explore—through reading, writing, and speaking—the relationships among popular culture, society, and the individual. By the end of the semester, students who study in this learning community will be able to discuss these relationships in spoken and written Standard American English. In the spring semester, English as a Second Language (ESL 102) continues, linked with Effective Public Speaking (SPE21), Suppplemental Instruction, and additional courses of students’ choice.
