Entering college students believe that high school graduation, placement exam scores, and a college acceptance letter guarantee success. These students are unaware of gaps between high school requirements and the demands of college-level writing courses. At North Central Texas College, a quarter of the students who take College Composition earn grades below “C” or withdraw, and 30% of incoming students cannot take Composition I until they complete developmental writing courses. Therefore, high schools and colleges must create interventions. This session offers strategies for establishing partnerships between colleges and high schools so that students can successfully “cross the bridge” into college composition.
