This course will act as a transition from ESL to English as taught to native speakers. The course will target individual student needs while also systematically preparing the students for increasingly advanced material. By the end of the course, the students should be able to do the following:
Construct sentences that logically follow each other.
Shape a paragraph that develops a full topic.
Sustain an argument through two paragraphs.
Read a text for multiple layers of meaning.
Students will be required to do regular reading and writing outside class. We will read excerpts leading full works from the following authors:
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Zora Neale Hurston
The students will have weekly vocabulary exercises/quizzes with a goal of learning 100 SAT-level words.
The students will have weekly grammar exercises to ensure control of sentences, particularly verb conjugation.
The students will write several short pieces and one longer essay for the culmination of the course.
The students will do structured presentations to develop confidence in speaking.
