Course Description

The purpose of this course is to provide intensive work on intermediate English language and reading skills necessary for college-level work. This is a second-level reading course, in our three-level sequence. The goal of the course is to build strong reading and thinking skills by intensifying the quantity of reading and the level and quality of analysis. Students will read in and out of class. Weekly vocabulary and reading comprehension quizzes will build language proficiency and test taking ability. All course work will increase student reading comprehension, general and discipline-based knowledge and facilitate passing the CUNY standardized exam.
