Prerequisite(s): Successful completion of ESLS 025 - Academic English Reading and Writing III  or by placement.
Academic English Reading and Writing Level IV is the fourth 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, and dictionary use. Students at Level IV write four-paragraph essays in a variety of genres with a focus on sentence level accuracy, parts of speech, the development of topic sentences, and standard punctuation.  The essays for this level include an introduction paragraph, two body paragraphs and a conclusion paragraph. Level IV students practice reading both intensively for analysis and extensively at a low-advanced level. Credit for this course does not apply to credit hours earned, grade point average, or graduation requirements.
