Reading and Writing I

ENGL - 091

Credits: 4

Catalog Year: 2017

This course is required for students whose placement test results indicate they need to develop their reading and writing skills before beginning college-level coursework. While some attention will be paid to improving study skills, the focus in this course is on improving students' vocabulary and reading comprehension as a means for improving their ability to express ideas in writing. The course recognizes the organic connection between reading and writing: students will read a text and then write about it as preparation for the kinds of reading and writing they will do in their other college courses. A minimum grade of C must be earned to progress to the next course in the composition sequence. ENGL 091 replaces ENGL 010 and ENGL 020. This course cannot be used to satisfy degree requirements.
