ESL Reading and Writing 8 - S

In this class, students focus on reading and writing in English for both general and academic purposes. They read excerpts from news articles, essays, and other works of fiction and nonfiction to learn to interpret why a text describes a topic in a certain way and why certain evidence is used. They also learn editing strategies while writing multiple drafts of essays in different genres. By the end of the course, students are able to interpret a text in English based on the author’s choice of content, language, and structure. Also, they are able to write cause-and-effect and solution essays.
