The course is rooted in research and theory that allows students to be immersed in foundational literacy skills needed for successful progress in college-level courses as well as future integration into their chosen career path. The course is designed for students with mid- to upper-level developmental skills who may benefit from an intensive skill-building curriculum that targets English and reading skills. This course also requires corequisite academic supports. The focus of the course will be on reading and writing skill practice, application, and integration across the disciplines at the college-level. Students will be expected to successfully demonstrate and apply appropriate college-level reading skills and writing skills to a variety of assignments and assessments. Proficiencies in strategic and contextualized reading and writing skills will be developed. Topics in reading and writing skill practice, application, and integration include the reading and writing process, critical thinking strategies, active reading strategies, and well-developed paragraph construction.
