Reading and Vocabulary 1

Course Code: COMX-4011

Course Description

This is a high beginning course designed to not only improve reading proficiency but also increase the appreciation of reading. It teaches language through reading and vocabulary. It is for students who need either to improve or review basic reading and vocabulary skills in English. Word attack skills, phonics, and syllabication are some of the skills that are introduced during the course. In addition, students will learn how to distinguish between a topic, main idea and supporting details as they expand their word recognition and active production of vocabulary. Skimming and scanning, pronoun reference, main ideas and their relationships to supporting ideas will be part of textual analysis. Students will also work with the content of reading passages through discussion and writing exercises that focus on meaning. The objective is to help students prepare for future academic coursework. Combined with credit ESOL-0311.
