Reading and Writing Studio
This course will allow more advanced developmental students the opportunity to proceed more quickly to English 101. Students will receive not only academic remediation but also an introduction to college culture. In contrast to English 095, English 094 excludes basic subskills such as sentence construction and descriptive writing in favor of higher-order skills such as the sequencing of paragraphs, thesis formation, and use of evidence in support of a critical claim. The scope of the course is also broader, integrating mentors, academic advising, and visits to the writing center in order to help students gain a sense of self in the college community. Prerequisite: Accuplacer scores of 65 or higher for Reading and 75 or higher for Sentence Skills.
