The purpose of this course is to instruct students in techniques for grasping sentence and paragraph meaning. Students will learn word meanings in context and will increase their vocabulary. They will develop skills in determining literal meaning with minimal use of their bilingual dictionaries. The course will focus on increasing reading comprehension. It will lead students through increasingly complex reading passages to help them progress from literal meanings toward critical reading and thinking. Further, it will provide opportunities, through reading, to understand important ideas and values in American life.
