What is Developmental Reading and English?

Developed by a Task Force comprising 18 English and reading faculty from across North Carolina’s Community Colleges, this curriculum charts a new course for integrated developmental English and reading in our System. The faculty team created it based on guiding principles provided the Developmental Education Initiative’s statewide policy team.

It is a curriculum rooted in research and learning theory, and influenced by the Common Core State Standards adopted by North Carolina’s public schools. It sets expectations for deeper thinking and high attainment. It supports relevancy in learning and will enable students to enter credit-bearing college courses more quickly, setting them on a pathway toward credential completion.

Starting in Fall 2013, FTCC will offer the new Developmental Reading and English (DRE).
