Academic Skills English Department

The reading and writing program provides a supportive environment (with 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.

Mission Statement:
Reading and writing are complex processes, both individual and social, that develop over time with continued practice and informed guidance. The Reading/Writing Department is committed to using current theory to place, teach, and assess academic English literacy. Our goal is to provide a supportive environment (small classes and trained professionals) with the aim of preparing all students for success in the full college curriculum. Active student learning is fostered through classroom discussions, collaborative peer interactions, and an integration of reading and writing. All courses have a consistent curriculum as well as exit criteria that are reviewed on a regular basis.
