Abstract

This study uses qualitative research to give voice to students in accelerated developmental writing courses. Using a review of survey data and structured interviews, students were asked about their lived experience in accelerated developmental writing courses. Four cases of students were studied from two different community college settings. Particular attention was given to capturing the students’ voices in answering why the students believed they were successful in these courses.
