Academic Skills English Department



The reading and writing program provides a supportive environment of small classes and trained professionals with the aim of preparing all students for success in the full college curriculum. The skills developed in these courses are helpful for students who have been out of school for a period of time or for students who have not been able to maximize their ability to learn. Active student learning is fostered through classroom discussions, collaborative peer interactions, and an integration of reading and writing.Portfolios are used for writing assessment and exams are used for reading assessment.
