Strong Start to Finish disseminates a variety of resources including research papers and “how-to” documents to practitioners in the field as they work to implement reforms. Here, you’ll find some of our collective knowledge.
Learning from the Reform
Strong Start to Finish’s 2020 Learning Network Convening was a held in Miami the first week of March. Highlights are hard to extract, as each session brought value to participants. To that end, we have decided to share the program here.
People in the Reform
Hear how Jeremiah Pitts, Associate Professor of English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) at Albany State University, uses a technique called communicative language teaching that focuses on helping students use language in real-life scenarios.
Steps to Success
In this Steps to Success paper, we see how LaGuardia Community College responded to a long-standing crisis in the math remediation approach to bring transformative change to scale via the math co-requisite project. Designed to achieve the same learning objectives as their standalone college-level counterparts, their model uses a single course structure with extended instructional time, allowing for integrated just-in-time support for basic skills material.
Points of Interest
This Points of Interest shows that when students begin directly in a gateway college course, with or without co-requisite support, they are more likely to complete the course than if they are placed initially in a remedial course.
