Helping struggling readers and English Language Learners (ELLs) learn to read is extremely important, but can also be very challenging. Because struggling readers often feel defeated by their past experiences with reading, they can be resistant to instruction. For ELLs, the task of learning a new language is a daunting task that can leave them feeling overwhelmed. These factors make it crucial that for these students to have early and frequent successes throughout the course of reading instruction to keep them motivated and engaged. Join us this session to learn more about how Reading Horizons can help your adult literacy students.

The latest initiative from The NROC Project, Developmental English is designed to help learners striving to meet college entrance requirements. The course integrates and compresses the standard developmental English curriculum— reading comprehension, writing, vocabulary building, grammar, punctuation and usage skills—and allows learners to accelerate into college-credit courses. This sequence enables learners to make predictions about their reading, analyze rhetorical structures, build vocabulary, and improve writing mechanics. Join members of the NROC team to learn more about the NROC English project.
