Academic English Reading and Writing Level V is the final course of a five-part series of ESL courses designed to prepare students for reading and writing at the college level. This course satisfies six credits of free elective and may satisfy the foreign language requirement for RVCC graduation only. Advanced Reading and Writing for Non-Native Speakers addresses the most advanced aspects of academic literacy and challenges students with the rigors of college-level discourse. Reading and writing are taught as related processes. This course emphasizes higher-order proficiency with the English lexicon, written expression, textual analysis, critical thinking, and information technology. Students in this course read college-level texts, both intensively for analysis and extensively for fluency, and write five-paragraph essays of various types.
