Summer Bridge Program in Literature at Haskell Indian Nations University

A three-year project to plan and run two cycles of a four-week summer bridge program for first-year students at Haskell Indian Nations University, focusing on English and humanities.

Haskell Indian Nations University will offer a 4 week Summer Bridge Program for Freshman students focusing on Humanities and English. The Program will develop and implement a culturally relevant curriculum and Summer Bridge Student Handbook that will focus on Native American literature, critical thinking, grammar and composition. The students will be identified as requiring remedial English coursework to bridge the gap between high school and college and will prepare towards completing their degree. The Summer Bridge Program will identify 60 freshman students and each English faculty will conduct an Inventory Exam that will identify the learning styles of each student and develop the coursework activities according to the student learning styles. The Summer Bridge Program will entail three (3) years with the first year as Planning and Curriculum Development; second year will offer the first Summer Bridge Program, and third year will offer the second Summer Bridge Program.
