Basic Skills 75CE: Introduction to College
  • Support first-time students in learning how develop a college support network.
  • Facilitate students in identifying career interests and making informed choices about training and education pathways so they can discuss them with counselors/depts.
  • Inform students of math and English options such as taking math/English refresher courses, challenge exams, preparing for and taking the placement exam, that can lessen the time it takes for them to successfully complete math/English certificate and degree requirements

Part 3: The Next Level

What happens AFTER Orientation?

  • Students use TABE Locator “pre-placement” test to get an idea of their strengths and non-strengths.
  • Students use their results to inform which classes are best for them given the context of their skills and goals; options include:
    • Free, short, intensive refresher Math and English classes (Basic Skills 2CE, 23CE and 35CE)
    • New classes start every 5-weeks
    • Learning Skills

Program Goals & Design Principles

  • Utilize their TABE locator test scores to develop their personal strategy for strengthening their English and math basic skills
  • Explain options and consequences so students can make informed choices for themselves
  • Provide readily available and accessible opportunities for students to refresh their basic skills throughout a semester
  • Create and nurture a college-going culture by exposing students to their post-secondary opportunities while setting high expectations and academic standards

Our Pedagogy and Shared Philosophy

  • College is for everyone
  • Build upon students’ existing knowledge, skills and assets
  • All students will benefit from having a gauge of their academic readiness without penalty
  • All students will benefit from academic preparation before they take the Placement test
  • Set students up for success by focusing on relationship-building and helping them navigate our systems
  • Sharing of personal stories helps students connect with others in creating a support system for their college journey
