Emphasizing the connection between reading and writing, the course will include naturally sequenced, culturally relevant reading selections and writing assignments that challenge students to examine and reinterpret their own experience and background knowledge. Recognizing the connection between oral and written, the course will include peer discussion of reading assignments and essay drafts. You will improve your grammar and writing skills with the help of writing and grammar assignments and class discussions.
