Reading 097: Introduction to College Reading

Placement is determined by College testing. The primary focus of this developmental reading class is vocabulary building and
the reading process. With improvement
in vocabulary, students can also expect to improve their comprehension. Students review, refresh, and reinforce skills that
my have become less efficient through a
lack of application. A structured reading and writing project is designed to improve reading skills. Pre and post testing and guided laboratory practice are also included in the course. NOTE: RD 097 is the first in a two-course sequence. If the initial placement is RD 097, students will be required to complete RD 097 and then RD 098.
