Reading and Vocabulary Program Overview
You will be expected to read extensively in your academic or professional life. Textbooks, professional emails, and discussion boards are a few types of readings that will challenge you daily. To strengthen your comprehension and increase the speed of readings you'll face, it will be important to build your vocabulary and ability to read in a different way such as identifying main ideas, skimming, and checking comprehension questions for clues. Learn vocabulary in the context of your readings, through real-world situations, and by practicing exercises from the textbook. Learn to read others' research to parlay it into your own. As an academic preparation program, research and group projects will make up part of the activities in this course. The course will allow you to work by yourself and with your classmates to complete assignments. You may be expected to meet with group members offline to complete pair or group activities. All students must complete and submit a capstone assignment at the end of the course.
