Abstract

Many college developmental English courses focus on skills and strategies. Yet, these tend to deaden students with text. This study looks at the effectiveness of a different approach that integrates authentic literacy events and recommends re-envisioning a more ecologically based developmental English curriculum centered on engagement in a literature-rich classroom.
