GEN 101 - Reading Workshop

Semester Hours: 3
Students enrolled in this course learn to adjust their reading rate (words/ minute) to their purpose. Regardless of how well they read before the course, they can expect their rate to increase dramatically-100 w.p.m. on the average-while comprehension also increases. Vocabulary improvement is heavily stressed; daily quizzes encourage active participation outside of class. Class time is devoted to individualized programs which assist students to learn to skim and scan, to recognize main ideas, to understand general principles, to read critically, to perceive organizational patterns, and to study more efficiently.

Pre-requisites: none.

Offered: Fall and Spring.
