English content designed to help students meet basic college entrance requirements.
For installation in a Learning Management System (LMS), this course integrates and compresses the standard developmental English curriculum — reading comprehension, writing, vocabulary building, grammar, punctuation, and usage skills — enabling learners to make predictions about their reading, analyze rhetorical structures, build vocabulary, and improve writing mechanics.
With media-rich presentations, comprehension exercises, and the My Journal feature, NROC English supports students through a variety of instructional approaches that engage and enhance a wide range of learning styles.
“As soon as I saw it, I knew it was the curriculum piece we were missing.”
“I've been teaching English for a very long time . . . and it's the first thing I've ever found that was truly comprehensive."
“NROC Developmental English was a clear choice for us because its learning objectives and content require students to read, engage with, and respond to informational texts in a number of ways."
"So one of our students, Raymond Banks, said that the only criticism he has for NROC is that he didn't use [NROC English] sooner. Well, trust me, I have the same criticism."
