ENGL 0989 - Foundations for English Composition


An integrated reading and writing course designed to give students with Learning Support English requirements an opportunity to develop their basic skills in English and composition before they proceed with the freshman-level English course.  This is an individualized lecture/lab-based course designed to prepare students for college credit English and reading-intensive classes by providing exposure and practice in reading and writing expository, narrative, and persuasive texts.  Topics include applying critical reading skills for organizing, analyzing, and retaining material and developing written work appropriate to the audience, purpose, situation, and length of the assignment.  The course integrates fundamental reading skills - comprehension, vocabulary, and rate - with foundation skills in writing a variety of academic essays.
