English COMPOSITION:

NEXT: Look at what your discipline has written previously about Discipline specific SLOs. How do these compare to each of the general college learning outcomes above? (Please add anything here that you have. I couldn't find anything. 2007-8 Program Review was not completed in the template.)

Think about how these programmatic SLOs relate to the College Learning Outcomes above. Feel free to edit, expand or change them. Try to make a program SLO for each College Learning Outcome with scores of 3 or higher on the matrix.
