“Curious George Goes to College: Adventures in Integrated Reading and Writing”

Beginning in fall 2015, Lake Superior College Developmental Education piloted a new cross-discipline curriculum by merging developmental level reading and writing classes.  The aim in these classes is to focus on college readiness and a supportive learning environment, thereby enhancing student achievement and retention. LSC English and Reading faculty, advisors, and ABE instructors work together by combining various co-teaching models, additional academic lab support time, and semester-long advising to encourage entry-level college success. Our session will focus on the successes and struggles of this program so far.
