Reading (READ)




97 Critical Reading
1 credit hour

Offered fall and spring semesters. Offered two hours a week for one half of semester.

Reading 97 is designed to provide a condensed review for making students more efficient, systematic readers and thinkers. Emphasis will be placed on improving vocabulary and building advanced levels of comprehension and inferential reading, including the ability to analyze, evaluate, and integrate information. Required of all students whose placement assessment scores indicate the need. (Exceptions can be made for students not pursuing a degree or certificate.) This course does not meet associate degree graduation requirements.

This course is limited to two attempts. A grade of A, B, C, D, F, W, R, or X is considered an attempt. The second attempt will require a minimum of one additional hour of instructional time each week in a designated ACM study lab.

Prerequisite: Appropriate placement assessment scores.
