LACR 008 - English as Second Language

3 credits
LACR 008 prepares students for whom English is a second language to produce the kinds of writing and presentations expected of them on the college level, and to improve their reading and critical thinking skills. This course focuses on prose techniques. Students will learn to respond in writing and speaking to readings and to the work of other students. The workshop format engages students in collaborative learning activities. Enrollment is based on performance on the English Placement Exam, the Michigan Placement Test, and TOEFL scores. Students will receive a grade, but this course does not count toward graduation. Successful completion of this course will permit the students to enter LACR 009, LACR 100, or LACR 101, depending on the teacher’s recommendation, in the following semester.
