Students: MAJOR CHANGES to Developmental Courses

Students in developmental reading and writing courses!

If you need to take just one of

  • ENGL 001
  • ENGL 002
  • READ 095,
  • READ 099,

take them this summer or fall.

The courses are retiring!

If you need to take BOTH ENGL 002 and READ 099, take the new IERW 002 and save time and money!

Free Stuff @ENGL-READ Open House

Mobile pockets will be free.
Free “mobile pockets,” lanyards, styluses and other free stuff at the English-Reading Department Open House, Monday Nov. 14, 2 to 4 p.m. Science Center rooms 151 and 152.

Come to the English and Reading Department Open House on Monday 14 November, from 2 – 4 in SC 151 and 152 on the Rockville campus.

The event is a chance for students to see what will be offered next semester, get help with their schedules, decide on General Education information and otherwise get into the swing for spring!

We’ll have games (oh yes we will!), giveaways, advisors to help you make decisions, and laptops ready for your registration! It’s a one-stop shopping extravaganza!

By all means, pop on by.  It will be more fun than you imagine.

Please join me this Thursday to hear Uri Treisman from the Dana Center in Texas and a nationally recognized leader in developmental education speak to the college about trends in developmental courses.  He is attending as part of our work on a First in The World Grant which will hopefully have significant impacts on developmental math pathway into statics.  This presentation will cover a wide variety of topics and will be beneficial to anyone hoping to influence student success.

You can learn more about him at

I hope to see you all on Thursday April 21 in BE 158 from 2:00 to 3:30.
