Approved Document

At this point, we have not adopted any core beliefs or practices, but as we do, they will be listed here.

Each statement will be accompanied by an indication of what percentage of the ALP faculty agreed with the statement. Our intent is not that this will be a list of "required" beliefs or practices for the ALP faculty. Rather, it is intended as document indicated the consensus of the ALP faculty about what works in the classroom. We will gradually offer faculty development opportunities in various formats to support the beliefs and practices in the document. Our hope is that the large numbers of faculty who will be teaching ALP in the future will find here help in improving their classroom practice.

Even this list of "approved" beliefs and principles will still be very much a work in progress, subject to review and revision as we get better and better at our important job of helping basic writers become proficient college-level writers.
