I will explore alternative methods for teaching developmental students. Traditional methods of teaching grammar and writing have already failed most of these students. We cannot offer them the same material in the same way without expecting the same results. I will look at the current research of various learning styles and multiple intelligences, and adapt my teaching methods accordingly. I want to rethink what my colleagues and I do in the classroom and find ways to help our students be more successful, as students, as learners, and as future contributors in the work force. As a tangible result of my research and exploration, I will prepare a "catalogue" of teaching strategies for instructors of developmental students. This resource guide could be utilized by any instructor and adapted to his or her own discipline.
