  1. Review possible new English 1500 equivalent DISCUSSION

*Study from 2022- English 1500 for multilingual writers

-ESL has a higher success rate than those in traditional classes, but when put in English department, it        would not fill.

*4 units, more grammar, more editing time, students opt into it, offer in both formats (face-to-face and online), even at night. Adjunct would need to meet minimum quals. Kulzer-Reyes teaches multilingual students anyway, so why not make it transferable?

*Concerns – would this interfere with 1501?
