ENG* H096 - Introduction to College English
This course is designed to prepare students for the reading and writing demands in Composition and other college-level courses by integrating reading, writing, and critical thinking. Student writing 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 skills in exposition, interpretation, and argumentation. Students learn and practice specific college-level skills through critical reading and writing, class discussions, lectures, group presentations or workshops.
Prerequisite(s): Appropriate score on placement test, or approval from Division Dean or advisor.
Note: Students must receive a grade of C (73) or better to pass this course. Additionally, a free, one-hour Supplemental Instruction session for reading, grammar, and writing support immediately follows this course 1 or 2 days per week based on placement cut scores, and is listed with each course.
This course does not satisfy an English requirement or an elective in any degree program, nor do its credits count toward graduation.
