PUENTE Program

Lone Star College-North Harris is implementing the PUENTE Project model to prepare students for transfer to four year universities. Students take a rigorous two-course English class sequence (Developmental Studies English and college-level English) and EDUC 1300, the first time in college course, taught by a PUENTE-trained instructor and a counselor/advisor.  The taproot of PUENTE success is its professional development program for teachers and advisors. These trainings provide the tools to deliver PUENTE’s threefold program of extensive writing instruction, sustained academic advising and personal mentoring. The classes provide a supportive environment with a focus on multicultural literature. Students work closely with the counselor/advisor to prepare an academic plan, focus on academic and professional goals, and transfer to a four-year university.

process of reciprocal classroom observation and self-reflection. The four faculty in each “teaching
square” visit each other’s classes over the course of a semester and meet to discuss what they have learned from their observations.
