Blanton Past-President Daytona State College Dr. Nick Bekas Valencia Community College Efrain Bonilla North Florida Community College Karen Eisenhauer Brevard Community College Cathy Lally Brevard Community College Patti Levine-Brown Florida State College at Jacksonville Melinda Milles Florida Department of Education Division of Florida Colleges Karen Nails-Porter FCRC President Bethune-Cookman University Pat Newell Edison State College Sandra Offiah-Hawkins Daytona State College Len Quatrella Bethune-Cookman University Laurel Severino Santa Fe College Marjorie Simon Palm Beach State College Dear Colleagues, Florida Developmental Education Association As you are aware the American education system K12 - postsecondary is facing challenging times. Not only economically, but also in terms of the skills students are expected to possess at key points in their educational career and the required assessments. These are skills many students do not have at the designated time and still do not have when they enter the community college. These are the students you see and work with daily. These are the students you try to motivate with innovative and best practice approaches. These are the students you truly want to see succeed if for no other reason than to let him or her know that they can succeed. In these difficult economic times, professional development conferences have to deliver real value, and I m proud to say through the hard work of many, this year s FDEA Annual Conference accomplished that goal. The conference opened with a wonderful reception featuring Hunter Boylan, Director of the National Center for Developmental Education and Professor of Higher Education at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. He shared FALL 2010 VOLUME 26, ISSUE 2 PRESIDENT S MESSAGE... information about the National Center for Postsecondary Research Conference held the week before (see News from NADE article), discussed the challenges and opportunities in the near future for developmental education and held a Q & A session. During the remaining two days attendees gained a wealth of insight and information first hand from Melinda Milles, a FDOE representative, on the Developmental Education Initiative (DEI), Postsecondary Readiness Competencies and the Postsecondary Education Readiness Test (PERT). After each topic members participated in break-out sessions by area (reading, writing and math) to discuss how the information received impacts developmental education in Florida and their respective colleges. Florida developmental educators will have the honor of hosting the NADE 2012 Conference in Orlando, Florida. In order to make this a memorable conference we need everyone s help. If you haven t already done so, please complete the volunteer form that appears in this newsletter. Additionally, as we develop a logo for the conference, I am asking each of you to submit as many photos as you like, in jpg format, of your college logo, college sign, and developmental faculty/staff/ students (individual or group) to me at Janita Patrick In closing, I recently saw the title of a workshop and it made me stop and reflect for a minute. The title was Why Do You Teach? Well like you, although I m no longer in the classroom, it is because I care. So I mentally started running a list of why I care when I saw a quote I have in my office that said it all. In the seed is an apple you can t yet see. Inside every student there is the potential to bloom and bear fruit, but it takes a watchful gardener to provide the things it needs such as the right soil, sunlight, fertilizer and water. We are the gardeners and if we do it right there will be many apples in Florida. ~ Janita Patrick, FDEA President

2 FLORIDA DEVELOPMENTAL EDUCATION ASSOCIATION NEWSLETTER FALL 2010 PAGE 2 FDEA President s Circle Award Why I Chose a Community College and How Developmental Classes Have Helped Me By Philip Campbell My decision for going back to school and enrolling in a community college, as a foundation for higher learning, was pretty straightforward; I had no alternative. Well, yes and no, we always have a choice. I m a homeless Vet with only a G.E.D, lying down and giving up is not an alternative. Finding steady employment was starting to become more disheartening by the day. After being turned down for jobs that I knew I could do, and do well, it started eating at me psychologically. Finally, I realized that if I am going to become an effective member of society again, I had to take another course of action and college seemed the best option for me. What started out as a means to better myself and enhance my life has now changed into something significantly superior. It s not merely concerning me anymore. It s about the homeless and giving back hope where none is found. I call it, helping the homeless help themselves. Going to college has permitted me to help myself. One of the dangers of living on the streets is losing one s hope and self-esteem. When the homeless see one of their own succeeding, fighting his way up and out of the woods, it starts to give them fresh hope. When I first started, I had no idea of the impact I would have on the homeless who desire to help themselves. Their response continues to provide me with strength and determination to strive even harder. We (the homeless) have access to all kinds of assistance from food and clothing to tents and bikes. These basic necessities are beneficial; nevertheless, they do not put a roof over our heads and stable employment to go to every day. Jobs that are everlasting are what the majority of us on the streets are looking for. After being out of school for over thirty years, the developmental classes have given me a new beginning. The classes have given me the self-assurance and ability to not only complete in class but get the high grades I need to continue on with my education. They have equipped me for the road ahead and what is required to get a college education. The developmental classes also laid the foundation for the support system that is created in a college environment through the teachers and staff. The support system that I have is far greater than that of the average student. I have God, churches in the area, my homeless friends, and all the organizations to help me. Thanks to Brevard Community College, the developmental classes, and the support system, my future looks brighter. FDEA President s Circle Award $1, Philip J. Campbell, Jr. Brevard Community College

3 ~OPINION~ FALL 2010 PAGE 3 BY LAUREL SEVERINO...not everyone speaks acronym. Many states are eyeing Florida s systemic overhaul, the custom made PERT and our efforts in regard to course redesign. Only Tennessee and Texas are generating as much national interest. I don t think I could have made it in the military. There are several very good reasons for this. First, I don t like pushups, I hate sit ups, and I refuse to run, even if there s free Starbucks involved. Second, I don t like to be yelled at. If the drill sergeant yelled, I d either cry or yell back, and I ve seen Private Benjamin. I know what happens when you cry in the army. Third, I don t look good in camouflage. It clashes with my eyes. Besides, I don t typically like looking like shrubbery. Finally, I couldn t be in the military because I d never know what anyone was saying to me. I don t speak acronym. PFC, you eatin those MRE s in your BDU s again? Acronym is a second language that takes years to master. The military has an infamous dialect of acronym. So does higher education. If a student takes the TABE, completes ABE, takes the CPT, and passes the FCBSET, this is a good thing, except that no one really knows what that means because not everyone speaks acronym. Only really old professors are fluent in the education dialect of acronym. Maybe the good news is that, as any educated linguist will tell you, languages are living things that grow and change. Words are born and die. It s like spring cleaning, only less dust. We can periodically look forward to giving some of our acronyms long overdue farewells. The CLAST was a welcome goodbye for many. Soon, the CPT will bid adieu. But, as one acronym dies, several more are born to take its place. Two new acronyms have been recently added to our educational jargon. The first, Florida s Postsecondary Readiness Competencies or FPRC s, aren t going to directly affect us in higher education. In an effort to align the second generation of the Florida Sunshine State Standards to what higher education faculty members declare are the competencies high school students need to begin entry level college course work (ENC1101, MAT1033, etc.), the FPRC s were delineated. It s important to remember, these FPRC s were created by a conglomeration of professors from colleges and universities in Florida who teach either developmental education courses or entry level college courses. It s also important to remember these competencies are directed at high school students, not college students. These are skills students should be able to perform by the time they graduate high school in order to enter freshman level course work. While the FPRC effort was underway, the contract on the CPT was coming to an end. Many faculty concerns about the effectiveness of the CPT encouraged Executive Vice Chancellor of the Division of Florida Colleges, Dr. Judith Bilsky, and her highly motivated and engaged staff to invite faculty members back to help advise the creation and selection of the CPT s replacement. Aligned to the FPRC s, the PERT (Postsecondary Education Readiness Test) is now being used to test students in high school as well as students not in high school, but who are interested in beginning college course work. One result of this work is the necessity of reviewing the curriculum content of the developmental education courses offered at the (continued on page 5)

4 FLORIDA DEVELOPMENTAL EDUCATION ASSOCIATION NEWSLETTER OPINION ( FALL 2010 PAGE 4 C O N T I N U E D F R O M P A G E 3 ) the various Florida colleges. Students are tested on one set of competencies but are remediated and exited based on another set. On October 13 th and 14 th, another group of Florida developmental education faculty members began work on a new set of developmental education course requirements. These recommendations will be disseminated to the Council of Instructional Affairs (CIA) and then to faculty members who teach developmental education courses. Based on these competencies, a diagnostic component of the PERT will be completed and the discussion regarding the State Exit Exam will begin. What does this mean for us? First, it is vital we seek out our institution s CIA member and establish a healthy system of communication as well as a robust discussion about the future of developmental education, not only at our schools, but in Florida and the nation as a whole. Many of you are not receiving relevant information in a timely fashion. We must instigate the flow of information. Melinda Milles, Director of Transition Programs and Services, is able to add faculty and administration to the DOE listserv and this may be helpful. Second, we will have approximately one to two years during which our students will be placed into our courses based on one set of criteria and remediated/ exited based on a second set. Given the amount of work and length of time all of these changes require, the disjointed nature of this system could not have been avoided. One thing I ve learned about the genetics of teachers in general is that we re a pretty flexible bunch. No, I m not talking Pilates; I mean we re used to doing our best while waiting for a cumbersome system to catch up with us. Third, this means we need to be prepared for the eventual tinkering with course content and the State s course numbering system. Be prepared for a probable move to two levels of developmental education in each academic area (math, reading, and writing). Be prepared for uniform cut scores for the state exit (or whatever test that ends up becoming). Be prepared to keep all of Florida s students best interests in mind when encountering the uncomfortable beginning of change. I hope this revamped system will eventually work out to benefit the students in the long term. I like it that developmental education in Florida is getting some attention. A focus on developmental education, in general, is occurring nationally. Many states are eyeing Florida s systemic overhaul, the custom made PERT and our efforts in regard to course redesign. Only Tennessee and Texas are generating as much national interest. At the heart of this legislative focus is the Florida House and Senate members desire to save the elusive dollar. High school students needing remediation in college is a redundancy that the policy makers are frustrated with, and rightly so. The problem is that many of our students don t necessarily come straight from high school and the ones who do can t necessarily be legislated into academic preparedness. The ridiculously ill funded SB1908 (College and Career Readiness) can t address social problems that make educating high school students so difficult. At the heart of the Division of Florida College s focus on developmental education is, it seems to me, a balancing act: adhering and implementing the law while doing what is best for students. The two responsibilities are not necessarily complementary, but I think Dr. Bilsky and best to make the former conform to the latter by leaning heavily on the expertise of the faculty in Florida s college system. If ever there existed a chance to make developmental education in Florida purposeful and successful, it s now. Seek out your One thing I ve learned about the genetics of teachers in general is that we re a pretty flexible bunch. No, I m not talking Pilates; I mean we re used to doing our best while waiting for a cumbersome system to catch up with us. CIA member. Keep tabs on issues that directly and indirectly affect our students. Disseminate information. You may be the only reliable link some faculty members have to current events in developmental education. Stay connected. Make these transitions with help from fellow educators across Florida through FDEA.

9 FALL 2010 PAGE 9 News From NADE The following is a compilation of two separate pieces of correspondence. Hello everyone, NADE has been busy on behalf of its mebers! There is a new NADE initiative, the Political Advocacy Project. The NADE Board and the 2011 Conference Chairs have asked each chapter to identify a political liaison or chapter representative to help distribute key points about developmental education and coordinate visits with state congressional leaders while we are in D.C. Our intent is to Make the Case for Developmental Education and to be a presence and a resource for our congressional leaders. Last month, President Marcella Davis, Past President Karen Patty-Graham and I attended a conference in NYC hosted by the National Center for Postsecondary Research, [www.postsecondaryresear chch.org ] a part of Columbia University's Teacher College s Community College Research [ccrc.tc.columbia.edu/ ]. We heard from policymakers, the Undersecretary of Education Martha Kanter, and foundation officers. They spoke to the great need for education including developmental education - for our populace to meet the current job force needs. Information about that conference can be found at aryresearch.org/ conference/. Downloads of the many presentations and papers can be found at research.org/conference/ downloads.html. When you download, you will see that the overall picture presented on developmental education is dim. Thomas Bailey's charts tell of developmental students not making it through the sequence to which they are assigned and not earning a certificate/graduating. More positive information is provided in several of the "promising practices" of acceleration, learning communities, and the use of modular formats of instruction, and - although it's not here specifically - in the voices of the funding organizations (Lumina, Achieving the Dream, Gates, Jobs for the Future, to name a few) and the government, represented by Undersecretary of Education Martha Kanter. All of these voices are calling for the nation to spend more time and energy determining what works best in developmental education, because we need our students to complete high school and graduate from college in order to support the American economy. At the end of the day on Friday, voices were calling for not just an evolution in the way we focus on students, but a revolution. And many voices are calling for an increase in support for all teachers, especially those who are working with developmental students. I urge you to become more involved with your professional organizations - NADE, CRLA, NCLCA, and ATP - as the nation goes forward on its quest to improve student learning and citizen employment. It will be through our organizations that valuable professional development will be provided. Sincerely, Jane A. Neuburger, NADE President-elect Joseph Howland FDEA Excellence in Developmental Education Scholarship $1, Phyllis Moten Daytona State College
