Need more practice with reading & writing? Improve Your English and Reading Skills with Word Jam

Wed, 11 July, 2012 at 1:59 pm

This free, week-long program helps students practice college reading and writing strategies.


Word Jam is a free, non-credit, one-week program aimed at providing additional support to current and in-coming CaƱada College students in all levels of English, Reading, and ESL. It will be held Monday through Friday, Aug. 6-10 from 9 AM to 12 Noon in the CaƱada College Learning Center.
 
Word Jam students work with CaƱada faculty to practice college-level reading and writing strategies, learn the expectations of their specific English, Reading, or ESL courses, and become familiar with CaƱada College resources. Past students in Word Jam have even boosted their CaƱada College placement test scores!

ā€œI participated in Word Jam, scored higher on the placement test, and I was able to skip the remedial classes and start in college-level English," said Christian Ayala, CaƱada College student and Word Jam participant last year. "Word Jam taught me some new skills and helped me remember some of the rules I learned in high school.ā€

To enroll in Word Jam, participants must be a current CaƱada College student or an in-coming student who has completed the CaƱada College application and taken the Placement Test. To sign up for Word Jam, email Julie Wilson at wilsonj@smccd.edu. Include your: 1) name, 2) G-number, 3) contact information (phone & email), and 4) the results of your CaƱada College Placement Test.
