While the movement toward integrating reading and writing curriculum is clearly happening across the country, there is still a tendency to teach reading and writing that is disengaged from meaningful academic content. This trend toward integration presents an opportunity for developmental educators to align their curriculum more closely with what is expected from students in 100-level content courses. We believe that students will be more academically prepared to meet the rigorous requirements of these content courses and will be more engaged in the learning process if they are exposed to real academic content while they are still in remediation
