3 credits
In Reading and Vocabulary 2, students practice general and academic English vocabulary, including key art, performance, and music vocabulary at a beginner-intermediate level. Reading skills such as skimming and scanning are practiced. Reading Comprehension and vocabulary skills are developed through practicing word-building skills and basic summarizing strategies. Students locate a main point in reading and summarize important points in a text. Students begin to integrate an author’s thesis with their own responses. In class, students engage with the text through verbal discussions. Students must demonstrate the ability to follow directions for assignments and tests and use lecture preparation and note-taking skills. Upon completion of Reading and Vocabulary 2, students will achieve the above objectives at a beginner to intermediate level.
