Intensive Reading: Fields of Reading

OVERVIEW

This course will engage you in interactive text-based discussions, question generation, and research opportunities. You will write in response to reading, and cite evidence when answering text dependent questions orally and in writing. Scaffolding is provided as necessary as you will engage in reading and writing increasingly complex text, and is removed as your reading and writing abilities improve over time.
