College Literacy

Grade 12 / Full Year Course - 2.0 credits

Prerequisite: Students must have earned credit for English 11 or Advanced Placement Language and Composition


College Literacy focuses on the improvement ofreading and writing strategies necessary to be successful at the college level.  Students will be encouraged to develop their own reading and writing processes based on these strategies,which are emphasized throughout the course. Contemporary fiction and nonfiction will be explored, evaluated and assessed.  Seniors will both react to literature and compose their own pieces; they will be asked to evaluate their writing through the use of models and self-reflection, as well as peer and teacher feedback.
