I work  at a college at which it has been mandated that we send "developmental" learners to community college.   Even so, our 2 critical thinking instructors, while enrolling only some "developmental" students, do address a need.

 In other discussions on this web site, I have stated my position that college reading and writing are on a continuum.  Every student is a developing reader and writer.  (I hope this is not heresy.  I don't mean to downplay the excellent work of developmental instructors and curricula at the college level. ) Also, some students can effectively read an art history textbook but struggle with  their chemistry textbook.

 In the fall, I hope to begin to persuade faculty across fields and their students that needing help with college reading  has no taint.  It is probably widespread whether you are 4-yr college, a community college, or a research university.

Please keep these "airwaves" open so we can all address the needs of our students in the best way possible.  Please stay "on the air," Jeanne.
