Reading Lab

Reading Lab

The Reading Lab is open to the DMC community. The Reading Lab offers many programs and tools to assist students and instructors of READ 0305, INRW 0408, and ESOL courses. Students are encouraged to seek help from the Reading Lab staff with lab assignments, coursework, vocabulary, TSIA2 prep and general questions about DMC student life. Instructors of READ 0305, INRW 0408, and ESOL courses can utilize the Lab for their classes (by appointment only) and request use of equipment such as the starboard and Aquos TV. Books are also available to take, borrow, or trade for recreational reading through the free library.
