Concurrent/Dual Enrollment

Collaborative Teaching and Mentoring model (CTM)

The Collaborative Teaching and Mentoring model (CTM) can significantly reduce the gap between existing knowledge of high school students in mathematics (and other subjects) and college professor expectations in order to increase participation and success of underrepresented minority students in university STEM programs. This model provides systematic coordination of efforts and activities that create the infrastructure necessary for building a successful and workable school/college bridging mathematics program.

The model provides students, especially in rural settings, to complete their secondary four-year mathematics sequence concurrently with obtaining credit for equivalent college level work and provide secondary teachers with support. The collaborative teaching model increases collaboration with local school districts across Alaska and better prepares their students for serious college work or successful post-secondary careers. The project focuses on the math preparation of the school age kids to experience rigor and expectations of college while they are still in the high school. The project also has a mentoring component with a college instructor working with a district math teacher in joint efforts to deliver a high quality course.

Concurrent enrollment / dual enrollment programs provide the opportunity for students to simultaneously earn high school and college credit, thus putting them a step ahead on their college pathway. Concurrent enrollment options and offerings are growing in Colorado and across the country at a rapid pace, giving rise to new challenges and opportunities. Arapahoe Community College, one of the leaders in the concurrent enrollment arena in Colorado, has faced many of those challenges head on and is adapting and changing to better serve their dual enrollment students.
