Peter Adams

Dr. Adams has become the nation’s preeminent authority on the application of the corequisite model of academic support in the instruction of college-level English through his Accelerated Learning Program (ALP). The model, which is available to the vast majority of students placed into developmental English at his campus, has seen dramatic increases in the completion of gateway English courses among developmental students. Significantly, these increases have occurred in half the time of traditional remediation. The ALP model framework is becoming a cornerstone of several state and system level reforms in states like Colorado, Michigan and Connecticut. ALP has become a national model and is now implemented at institutions across the country.
