ESOL022R ESL READING II, FA 2015

Welcome to ESOL022R! 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/or reading comprehension quizzes will build language proficiency and test taking ability. All course work will increase students’ reading comprehension, general knowledge, and facilitate CUNY ACT certification. General Activities include in-class reading of college texts and newspaper articles; vocabulary expansion; in-class study time; group and whole class discussions of issues and ideas expressed in texts; responding to the readings, writing about the readings, and keeping a Reading Log. By the end of the semester, the students should acquire the following competencies: • Identify subject matter/discipline in a given text • Identify author’s point of view and tone • State the main idea of the text • Recognize implied meaning in text • Critically analyze a text • Discuss ideas expressed in a text using college-level vocabulary • Write short summaries • Recognize different text genres, e.g., argumentation, discussion, report, proposal • Understand the role of transitional words • Recognize the writer’s purpose and audience

ARTH1100 History of Photography S2016

“The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don’t necessarily see.” — André Kertész This course surveys the history of photography from its beginnings in the early nineteenth century to the present. We will examine the use of photography for aesthetic, documentary, and “scientific” purposes, stylistic shifts in photography related to aesthetic concerns, and varying interpretations of subject matter based on social and cultural concerns at specific moments in history. We will also consider the relationship between photography and the visual arts in general, which culminates with the primacy of photography as a medium by the late twentieth century.
