The CSU Expository Reading and Writing Task Force, comprised of members from the CSU as well as K-12 English faculty and curriculum specialists, has developed a series of assignments based on non-fiction texts to use in a 12th grade expository reading and writing course that districts will be able to pilot and adopt. The course is designed to prepare students for college-level English and it is aligned with English-Language Arts Content Standards.
English teachers at the eleventh and twelfth grade level are eligible to participate in the free workshops.
A mathematics committee has been working on developing professional development options for high school mathematics teachers. The committee is working to identify and develop professional development, as needed, utilizing a model similar to English.
University Outreach and School Relations, along with several other outreach programs at CSULB, provide Early Assessment and college preparation information to local high school students.
