ABOUT OTAN TRAINING: Workshop Descriptions

Workshop title Online Resources For Developmental English (NROC Dev English) 
Workshop description This workshop will introduce you to NROC's Developmental English. It is designed to help students meet the requirements to enter college. This amazing course blends reading comprehension, writing, vocabulary, grammar, punctuation and usage all in one place. Its multimedia approach meets the needs of our varied students. As a teacher it makes the difficult elements of writing review, including peer review manageable for you and for the student. You have to see it to believe it. Though initially thought to require a high school reading level, the scaffolding integrated in the program makes it available to high intermediate reading levels. 
Session length 1.5 hours 
Format Workshops: Synchronous online trainings, or series of trainings, in which facilitator and participants interact by voice or chat.
