Developmental Education

Hafa Adai! As the new program responsible for developmental education, our current mission is to transform the mathematics and English program to meet student needs and goals that help them progress into college-level courses here at GCC. Courses that fall under development education are EN096, EN097, MA094, MA097, MA098, and MA110G. Our instructors have worked in the area of developmental education for many years and have done extensive research on best practices. Nevertheless, we would like to hear from you. Do you have any suggestions or comments? Do you want to share your experiences? We want to know what works and what doesn't.
