This is the second course in a sequence of six courses designed to prepare high school students for college level course work. This course will help students develop additional skills essential to effective reading. The emphasis on decoding skills will continue. Writing assignments, as appropriate to the discipline, are part of the course. Class Notes: It is mandatory for students to complete all (no partial credit) Developmental Education Initiative (DEI) modules for a total of 16 hours of GROUP TUTORING in Building 200 (or Room 2215 at the AVI campus), see their advisor at least two times during the session, complete at least 5 hours of computer assisted learning online, and retake the placement test. DEI (formerly CASH-to-ROI) is worth 15% of the final course grade.
