Research-Based Integrated Reading and Writing Course Development
Pierce, Calisa A.
Journal of Developmental Education, v40 n2 p23-25, 34 Win 2017
With the continuing national emphases on acceleration and completion, an integrated reading and writing course (a combined developmental reading and developmental writing course, with all levels compressed into a single course) is one way to move students more quickly and efficiently through the developmental sequence while still maintaining standards of good instruction. Reading, Reasoning, and Writing, the course designed in this 2011-2012 practicum project, drew on recommended instructional practices for developmental education and principles of adult learning theory such as active learning, collaborative learning, mastery learning, contextual learning, and learning community design (Baker, Hope, & Karandjeff, 2009; Boroch et al., 2010; Boylan & Saxon, 2012; Schwartz & Jenkins, 2007; Simpson, Stahl, & Francis, 2004). Today, the course, now named Integrated Reading and Writing, is still an integral part of BridgeValley Community and Technical College's curriculum.
