Prerequisite(s): Placement test score within the designated range or successful completion of ESLS 022 - Introduction to ESLS II .
Academic English Reading and Writing Level I is the first of a five-part series of ESL courses designed to prepare students for reading and writing at the college level. The course emphasizes the use of academic vocabulary use in writing and the development of academic reading skills such as learning vocabulary in context and critical thinking, dictionary use and basic information technology. Students at Level I write simple descriptive, expository, and argumentative paragraphs with focus on sentence level accuracy, parts of speech, the development of topic sentences, and standard punctuation. Level I students practice reading both intensively for analysis and extensively at a high beginning level. Credit for this course does not apply to credit hours earned, grade point average, or graduation requirements.
