Adult Education and Diversity Programs: College English Skills
COLLEGE ENGLISH SKILLS (Formerly English 15)
This beginning course is designed for students already able to understand and speak the English language. This course is not recommended for students working on secondary language skills who would be better served by an ESL course. It is intended to reduce beginning writing students' fear and anxiety about writing. It develops writing fluency through written activities and assignments designed to teach and reinforce conventions of Standard English. This course focuses on sentence structure and development and sentence combining. Students will work toward developing short paragraphs.
