Martha -- Could it be that music, foreign language, and engineering courses
are electives chosen by the student, who is interested and motivated to
learn the material because s/he likes it?  While "Developmental Reading"
implies a "deficiency" which makes the student uncomfortable, and not
very happy about having to relearn something that should have been masterd
by the time s/he reached college.  Perhaps the "Developmental Reading" courses
should be adjunct courses with chosen electives, where the students would be
using the preferred text to learn the necessary reading strategies.  This
was just a thought, maybe it's an old and tested one.  Thanks for the
interesting commentary.  Joanie Shulman
