Combining Problem-Based Learning with Accelerated Learning Program for Pre-College Writers
Susan Waldman of Leeward Community College, Pearl City, Hawaii, will be presenting the use of PBL with pre-college writers at the Fifth Annual Conference on Acceleration at the Community College of Baltimore County, Maryland, in June 2013. Combining Problem-based Learning with the Accelerated Learning Program (ALP) helps developmental students understand purpose in writing and focuses their research efforts. All student work in the Composition I class relates directly to issues and problems relevant to the scenario of an organic farm.
