Crouse-Powers, Amy – NADE Digest, 2006
For a college study strategies course, we utilized Macrorie's (1988) I-Search process to facilitate students' individual exploration of the typical "study skills" issues that such a course would cover.

Coe, William W. – NADE Digest, 2006
Anyone who has ever taught developmental mathematics knows there is a problem in course placement. Some students test well and place clearly above their level, while other students place below their real capability because they either have been away from math for a number of years, or did not prepare for the assessment test.

Barnes, Sharon L. – NADE Digest, 2006
Using popular culture in my developmental writing course has prompted me to reconsider what it means to create successful developmental writing assignments.

Although Language and Literacy research has become an impetus for change in the K-12 arena, Developmental and Adult Education practices have evolved little as a result of such inquiries.

Poindexter, Starletta Barber – NADE Digest, 2005
I have long believed that many of the students in my developmental/remedial/pre-college courses who have been labeled as " developmental," actually are students who, unknowingly, have learning disabilities. These students have failed to learn simply because they have different learning styles than "the norm." It is extremely…
