My Courses

ENG090R Developmental Reading I

ENG090R Developmental Reading I

ENG 090R is a course in reading and critical thinking skills focusing on improving reading proficiency to meet college-level reading requirements. We will be reviewing dictionary use, vocabulary development, cognitive strategies for reading, demonstrating reading comprehension in writing, paragraph analysis, main ideas, supporting details, various patterns of organization, and drawing inferences. We will also work on effective strategies for approaching readings from across the curriculum, assignments, and other helpful study skills.

ENG1101

ENG1101

The essays collected in your anthology are focused on New York City and urban issues. Reflecting on your own urban experiences alongside these essays will help you become an active participant in discussions about communities, public space, urban art forms, homelessness, crime, gentrification, the environment, and other topics of debate. Thinking critically about cities will also help you learn to use writing as a technology for managing competing ideas and clarifying and defending your own.
