Prerequisite(s): Successful completion of ESLS 023 - Academic English Reading and Writing I or by placement.
Reading and Writing Level II is the second of a five-part series of ESL courses designed to prepare students for reading and writing at the college level. The course emphasizes academic vocabulary development, writing with clarity and organization, and the development of academic reading skills, such as learning vocabulary in context and critical thinking, dictionary use. Students at Level II write two-paragraph descriptive, expository, and argumentative essays with a focus on sentence level accuracy, parts of speech, the development of topic sentences, and standard punctuation. The essays for this level include a thesis that is linked to two supporting paragraphs. Level II students practice reading both intensively for analysis and extensively at a low-intermediate level. Credit for this course does not apply to credit hours earned, grade point average, or graduation requirements.
