This study places the experiences of administrators and teachers of English as a Second Language and composition at five community colleges in North Florida within the three larger contexts of the field of ESL composition, the community college, and ESL students' own experiences. Six 'gaps' are identified from the research results ' sites at which ESL students are subject to fall through the cracks of the systems of instruction that are currently in place. A solution for bridging these gaps is proposed as well, with specific discussion regarding the ways in which the solution would bridge each of the six gaps while benefiting administrators, teachers, and students alike.
A Thesis submitted to the Department of English in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Arts.
