Reading, Writing, and Research in Early Childhood Education: Do you see yourself working with children and families somewhere in your future or want to build a greater understanding of the children and families in your life right now? If so, this learning community is designed for you. In this pairing you will complete two transferable classes (English 1A and CDEV 21) in a hybrid model: you will spend two days in class each week for three hours total and complete the remaining assignments online. Do you remember all the fun you had as a child? We intend to bring this sense of wonder and adventure alive in the study of child development with hands-on experience, self-reflection, and active research. For more information, contact Suzanne Coleman, CDEV Instructor, at (209)954-5582 or scoleman@deltacollege.edu  or Rebel Rickansrud-Young, ENG Instructor, at rrickansrud-young@deltacollege.edu.

Think Green: Environmental Politics and Communication: GLOBAL WARMING. ACID RAIN. SOLAR ENERGY. FOSSIL FUEL DEPENDENCE. PERIPHERAL CANAL. SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE. We read these phrases in the headlines and hear them in political debates. In this learning community, you will learn about environmental issues and the political process. You will also research different viewpoints on environmental issues and communicate your own ideas. If you want to save the environment—or save the economy from environmentalism—this learning community will give you the opportunity to learn more about some of the most urgent issues of our times while developing your writing skills. For more information, contact Sheli Ayers at sayers@deltacollege.edu or Joel Blank at jblank@deltacollege.edu.
