Atlantic Cape Community College http://www.atlantic.edu News at Atlantic Cape Community College Atlantic Cape Offers Workshop on Teaching Accelerated English Program http://www.atlantic.edu/about/news/article.php?article=2478 <p>Atlantic Cape Community College will offer a one-day workshop for college educators interested in starting an Accelerated Learning Program (ALP). The ALP Summer Institute will be held Wednesday, Aug. 3, at Atlantic Cape, 5100 Black Horse Pike, Mays Landing, New Jersey.</p> <p>ALP is proven to increase college success rates for students who test into remedial English. Atlantic Cape piloted its nationally recognized Accelerated Learning Program in spring 2012. ALP allows the student to bypass the second level of remedial English and go straight into college-level English while taking a support course with the same professor. The program allows students to save time by taking the courses concurrently and enabling them to begin college-level work immediately.</p> <p>This workshop is for those interested in starting an ALP program at their school, those in the process of scaling an ALP program, those who teach ALP, and those who are new to ALP. The ALP Summer Institute will include an overview to ALP and Atlantic Cape&rsquo;s triad model as well as sessions on:</p> <ul> <li>The essentials of the program, including scaffolding assignments, non-cognitive issues, active learning, and integrated reading and writing</li> <li>Best practices, assignments and activities particularly suited to ALP</li> <li>Integrating advising into the program</li> <li>Best practices and challenges in implementing and scaling the program</li> </ul> <p>The workshop will be led by ALP faculty, and the day will provide ample opportunity for discussion. The registration fee includes lunch and all materials, including a copy of our ALP Faculty Handbook.</p> <p>Registration fee is $189. Call (609) 343-5655 to register.&nbsp;</p> <p>Atlantic Cape received the 2016 Diana Hacker Two-Year College English Association Award for Outstanding Programs in English for Two-Year Colleges and Teachers in the Enhancing Developmental Education category for the college&rsquo;s Accelerated Learning Program.</p> <p>College data shows 84 percent of students enrolled through ALP complete ENGL101, nearly double the completion rate of students who go the traditional route of remedial English.</p> Atlantic Cape Student Scholars Honored at Phi Theta Kappa Day Celebration http://www.atlantic.edu/about/news/article.php?article=2477 <p>The New Jersey Council of County Colleges honored Atlantic Cape Community College students Taylor Borz of Collings Lakes and Brandon Hand of Stone Harbor, along with 35 other New Jersey community college students and their families, at its 22<sup>nd</sup> annual Phi Theta Kappa Day celebration May 5 in Trenton.</p> <p>&ldquo;Each year, the New Jersey Council of County Colleges honors New Jersey&rsquo;s top community college students and their families for their outstanding academic achievements and exceptional service to their communities as members of Phi Theta Kappa at their local community colleges,&rdquo; said NJCCC President Dr. Lawrence Nespoli. &ldquo;The event, sponsored by Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society for community colleges, the Coca-Cola Foundation and the New Jersey Education Association, offers deserving community college students statewide recognition by policymakers and legislators.&rdquo;</p> <p>Also, 21 of New Jersey&rsquo;s four-year colleges and universities have offered more than $1 million in scholarships to Phi Theta Kappa students transferring to their institutions.</p> <p>Phi Theta Kappa has recognized and encouraged scholarship opportunities among community college students for 97 years while promoting the academic integrity of the associate degree program. Students with grade point averages of 3.5 or higher are invited to join Phi Theta Kappa.</p> <p>The New Jersey Council of County Colleges is the state association representing New Jersey&rsquo;s 19 community colleges.</p> Final Exam Schedule - Mays Landing Campus http://www.atlantic.edu/about/news/article.php?article=2476 <div class="WordSection1"> <p>&nbsp;Final Exam Schedule-Mays Landing
