ENG-1005 College Reading

3 credits

Prerequisite: None.

This course is designed to teach critical reading skills applicable to course work in many fields. Students will learn how to recognize the essential points in a piece of reading, as well as how to discern the writer's tone and how to evaluate the relevance of supporting information. They will learn to ask questions about what they read, rather than taking what appears in print on faith. Though this course is not intended to be a speed reading course or a remedial course for serious deficits in reading skills, students who successfully complete this course will be more comfortable and fluent with a variety of texts and better prepared for further college work.
