NROC Project Updates for English and Math

To help teachers easily access discrete collections from NROC English - our comprehensive, integrated reading and writing curriculum - NROC has created 48 remixable HippoCampus playlists that focus on specific skills in grammar, reading, and writing.
Teachers can assign playlists as homework, present them to supplement classroom instruction, offer them to learners who are struggling with a particular concept, or use them to help students refresh their knowledge prior to taking standardized tests, college placement or high school exit exams.
Registered users can create their own versions of the playlists on their personal HippoCampus accounts, in order to further customize playlists by re-arranging content or adding other web resources. NROC members can also request access to an Excel spreadsheet that includes the URL for each item within the playlists to readily link to objects in a preferred Learning Management System.
Bookmark the playlists below for ready reference or access them on the bottom of the English page at your HippoCampus site.

Developmental English Course content available in Moodle (for access contact Phil Lacey)
The latest initiative from The NROC Project, Developmental English is designed to help learners striving to meet college entrance requirements. The course integrates and compresses the standard developmental English curriculum— reading comprehension, writing, vocabulary building, grammar, punctuation and usage skills—and allows learners to accelerate into college-credit courses. This sequence enables learners to make predictions about their reading, analyze rhetorical structures, build vocabulary, and improve writing mechanics.
