Participants from 20 colleges and universities attended the spring conference of the Colorado Association for Developmental Education (CoADE) April 13 on campus. Sessions covered Reading Across the Disciplines, including reading readiness in math and science classes. The keynote speaker, Dr. Karen Patty-Graham, gave examples of classroom strategies to help students become better readers and thinkers. The morning began with a special welcome from 12 upper class ASC students who began their course work in developmental courses, sharing their ‘great stories’ of unique challenges they overcame and their plans for the future.

The Fall CoADE conference will be held at Ft Lewis College, Oct. 12, with keynote speaker Dr. Douglas Sicker, Chief Technology Officer for the National Telecommunications & Information Administration. For more information, contact Karen Lemke, CoADE president.
