Deb Ousey and Chris Brown at TESOL

On March 22, Christine Brown, coordinator of Brandywine Learning, and Instructor in English Debbie Lamb Ousey, presented a session at the 2013 TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) International Convention held in Dallas, Texas. The presentation, titled "Supportive Communities for U.S.-Educated Multilingual Student Success," discussed how college faculty and administrators can best support the many immigrant U.S. high school graduates with both developmental and ESL needs. The session highlighted the organization and successes of Penn State Brandywine’s innovative American Studies Cluster, which has been in use for more than a decade on the campus, with very high retention and graduation rates.
