ENG* E092  - Introduction to College Reading

Credits: 3

Prerequisite: Placement test score or successful completion of transitional program in reading
Prerequisite Or Parallel: DS099

This course prepares students for the reading demands in ENG*101 and other college-level courses by integrating reading and critical thinking. Students will focus on understanding, reporting on, reacting to, and analyzing the ideas of others. Texts will serve as models and sources for students to refine their reading skills. Students will learn and practice specific college-level skills through critical reading, class discussions, lectures, group presentations, or workshops. This course does not satisfy an English requirement or an elective in any degree program, nor do its credits count toward graduation. ENG* E094 must be taken concurrently if student places into ENG* E092 and ENG* E094.
