Academic Reading 4 (CPEN 0996)
This course is designed to improve comprehension of passages at the grade 12 level. Skills taught include understanding college textbooks, analyzing literature and increasing speed and flexibility in skimming and scanning text. Work on the AWL (Academic Word List) continues along with greater emphasis on the connotations of words in context. Critical reading skills, including understanding purpose and tone, looking at evidence of bias and examining propaganda in texts are more stressed than at the 0886 level.
Prerequisite: Completion of CPEN 0886 with minimum 'C' grade or equivalent
