Calhoun offers dual enrollment

By Staff
Calhoun Community College’s Dual Enrollment program has a new opportunity for area high school students.
Sharon Johnson, a math instructor at Madison County High School who has taught Dual Enrollment for Calhoun for several years, has designed an online MTH 112/MTH 113 (PreCalculus Algebra and PreCalculus Trig) class that will be offered exclusively for Dual Enrollment students starting this fall. Johnson, who was recently named Alabama’s Online Teacher of the Year, has also been recognized by the Southern Region Educational Board for the quality of her online teaching.
A high school which may not have an instructor on staff qualified to teach college-level MTH 112 &MTH 113 will now have the opportunity to offer these classes to their students who are qualified to take Dual Enrollment classes. In addition, the high school can offer the class even if they only have one or two students who want to take it.
Due to the availability of technology on many high school campuses, students at participating schools may take the class as a group in a supervised setting and will receive individual attention from a qualified high school/college instructor.
