Introduction to College Reading
This course introduces effective reading and inferential thinking skills in preparation for RED 090. Emphasis is placed on vocabulary, comprehension, and reading strategies. Upon completion, students should be able to determine main ideas and supporting details, recognize basic patterns of organization, draw conclusions, and understand vocabulary in context. This course does not satisfy the developmental reading prerequisite for ENG 111. A student must earn a “C” or better and pass a standardized exit reading test to progress to the next class.
Prerequisites: STAR Center referral or satisfactory pre-enrollment placement test scores
