I had the opportunity to attend the Developmental Education Conference held at Disney's Coronado Springs in March 2008. That conference was truly an interesting event, in that, the reading and writing sessions proved to be very meaningful.
The reading session provided me with a number of engaging strategies that will be beneficial for our remedial students who are not motivated to read and the writing sessions brought about an awareness of the challenges students are faced with during enrollement in writing courses.
All of the sessions enlightened me with issues , strategies and approaches needed to implement when assisting any student who might be faced with reading and writing difficulties. I truly enjoyed the conference and look forward to one in the future. Rita Edwards
