Curricular Pathways

The focus of this project is closing the achievement gap between our targeted AAPI subgroups and historically higher-performing AAPI subgroups. During our project, we will offer 3 different Learning Community sequences to improve transfer pathways:

All our curricular pathways include varying levels of Cohort Learning, Integrated Student Services (such as counseling, academic advising), and Culturally-Specific Content, components of successful curriculum sequences from our previous grant project.
 

This 5-class sequence builds upon the LinC sequence started in our pilot project, and takes students who place at two- levels below college-level English through transfer-level English and fulfills multiple GE requirements as well as transfer requirements:

Sample Pathway for "Readiness and Success in College-Level English"
Quarter Class Students Targeted

This curricular pathway for Strategies for Preparation in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) is the most open-ended of the three, by design. The one-year-long pathway will include:

  • an anchor learning community that combines a nationally recognized math program (MPS), college-level English, and a General Education course.
  • a STEM course will be linked to the anchor learning community as a “choice” class for students.
  • a supplemental orientation class, “AAPI Student Success and Exploring STEM,” will be linked to the anchor learning course during the sequence.
