English 100A: Academic Strategies

Beginning in Spring 2018, the English Department will offer a four-unit composition course that replaces English 095, 097, and 099.

Successful completion of English 100A: Academic Strategies will allow students to take English 101 within their first year at AVC.

English 100A: Academic Strategies is designed to assist and empower students as they encounter and navigate different college learning environments.

The course emphasizes:
• the foundational writing skillsneeded to succeed

• the importance of critical awareness, reading skills, and textual analysis

• academic strategies for research

English 100A students will not be given a letter grade, but will receive a “pass” or “no pass” based on the score of their final portfolio, a collection of their work to be evaluated by faculty readers to determine their eligibility for ENGL 101, Academic Composition.

English 100A: Academic Strategies will be listed in an addendum to the 2017-2018 catalog.
