At Santa Barbara City College in California, the English Skills Department offers 2 developmental courses in composition and 3 in reading.  Our classes have been dubbed "gateway courses" since we have students from  various areas:  ESL and International who often take ESL courses first, high school grads and "drop outs," students in transition (new to college/returning).  These students score below our established collegiate
norms, but most do move on to LIt and Comp Dept to transfer to 4 year institutions and/or to certificate  programs.

We no have 9 full-time, tenure track instructors; the 9th person was recently hired and will begin in Fall, 2001.  Also, 2 of the 9 teach at least 25% in LIt and Comp and one 50% in ESL.  However, we are all full-time, tenure track.

I'll write you off the list to give you more detailed information.

Dear lrnasst listserve members,
I have for the past two years monitored the conversation and ideas that have
been passed through this network of professionals.  I am currently in need
of some information that only this group can provide.  I am seeking
information from individuals who are at institutions which offer tenure.  I
am specifically interested in the nature of those positions in developmental
education which have tenure track positions.  I am looking for a description
of the position and any relevant information.  Please respond off the list
so we don't burden the list with these responses.  I greatly appreciate in
advance any assistance that you can provide.
Sincerely,
Karen Tompson-Wolfe
