The main goal of this course is to move learners toward higher proficiency in reading comprehension and cultural literacy by investigating concepts and texts related to many fields of study to include business, science, psychology, politics, technology, etc. Classes will emphasize a developmental process that integrates reading comprehension, vocabulary expansion, problem solving, critical thinking, and cultural literacy. Readings from journals, newspapers, and works of fiction and non-fiction will be explored in this course. The three institutional credits awarded for this course do not count toward graduation requirements but are calculated into GPA. (Prerequisite: ESOL 101C Basic Writing or ESOL104C American Culture I with a grade of “C” or better, or permission of the ESOL Department Chair as determined using multiple measures.)
