ENG 040 - Reading & Writing Bridge

Hours: 0
A two-week long course intended for students who placed into EN*0203 and EN*0133.  The Reading and Writing Bridge is designed to assist in improving placement scores by focusing on test taking  skills and targeted remediation in reading and writing. In addition to test-taking strategies, course topics include annotating; developing and organizing ideas in writing; responding to texts; summarizing; reviewing parts of speech, punctuation, common spelling errors; and practicing editing techniques. At the end of the bridge, students will retake the reading and writing skills portions of the placement exam. To test out of EN*0203, students must earn a COMPASS reading score of 81 or higher or earn a 50 percentile rank or higher on the Nelson-Denny vocabulary and comprehension test. In order to test out of EN*0133, students must earn a COMPASS writing score of 70 higher or pass the writing sample.
