Film Synopsis: In this movie a faculty member and three Student co-Inquirers interview students from four English 102 sections. English 102 is a 4-unit accelerated course offered at Chabot College that is designed to move students to transfer level English in one semester. The course has been a cornerstone of Chabot's curriculum for over 15 years.
In the interviews, which take place during finals week, students speak candidly about a wide variety of issues: the fears and uncertainties they had about their own Capacity at the start of the semester; the challenging work asked of them in an accelerated setting; the role Love plays--or should play--in the classroom and curriculum; and much more.
The film offers an on-the-ground view of how the accelerated classroom has positively impacted students' educations.
