DRW-095 - Integrated Reading and Writing 25 credits
Integrated Reading and Writing 2 combines the skills of reading with its complementary task of writing. In terms of critical reading the course addresses general and specific comprehension skills necessary to be successful in library research, reading textbooks, reading technical material, and reading literature by promoting close reading and reading rigor standards. Vocabulary development focuses on content and structural analysis. In terms of writing the course provides a review of basic English skills in grammar, sentence structure, paragraphing and essay development to prepare students for college-level writing. The course is intended for students whose college placement test scores indicate placement in Reading II and Review for College Writing. Since this course provides preparation for English Composition I, department policy requires a grade of "C-" or better for admission to English Composition I. This course is the equivalent of DWT-099 and DRG-092 and will fulfill both developmental course requirements. This is a five credit developmental course. Credit for this course will not be counted toward fulfilling graduation requirements at STCC.
