PrefaceThis text was made possible by the Lansing Community College Open Educational Resource(OER) award program. In Developmental Reading and Writing, faculty have traditionally reliedon publisher-developed materials, largely due to the fact that finding materials that matched theskill levels of our students was difficult, and developing materials was time-consuming andrequired levels of publishing expertise beyond the abilities of many instructors. The LCC OERaward program has solved the problem by recognizing the time commitment required toproduce quality materials while the open platform available through OER has provided theaccess to publishing previously only available through the traditional textbook publishers.This text is a remix of resources selected from several OER College Composition texts, adaptedfor a developmental reading/writing audience. The text also includes original materials createdby LCC faculty for developmental and GED Preparation students. Our goal was to create a textthat met students at the skill levels with which they come to us and help them develop intoproficient writers through completing the Accelerated Learning model of concurrent enrollment inDevelopmental Writing support and First Semester Composition that has been in place at ourcollege for the last year and a half. We hope that this text will help beginning college writers todevelop both their writing skills and a love of writing. Please remix and revise as best meet yourand your students’ needs.Susan Hank, Adjunct Associate Professor, Integrated English AreaCheryl McCormick, Adjunct Associate Professor, Integrated English AreaNinna Roth, Adjunct Associate Professor, Integrated English Area2
