English 5A, Academic Literacy I, is devoted to preparing you for English 5B, Academic Literacy II.   This does not mean that this class will be devoted to “remedial” work.   Our approach to helping you develop successful reading and writing skills at the university is grounded in reflective practice.   This means that under my guidance, I expect you to try lots of different reading and writing strategies – or moves. While you are exposed to a variety of new “moves,” I’ll give you guidance and opportunity to think about what you are learning, reflecting upon HOW people read and write at the university.   This kind of reflection allows you to both name the things you learn and to locate your learning in relation to your own literacy habits. English 5A teaches you to analyze your reading, writing, and thinking habits as you write about a variety of topics. You’ll practice reading and summarizing texts and arguments. With these goals in mind, we will do a great deal of reading about how to read, write, and make decisions about your writing.

Course Goals
This course has the following goals, which guide its structure, philosophy, and outcomes. By the end of the semester, a student should be able to:

Reading Strategies, Processes, and Assessment
    • Demonstrate or articulate an understanding of reading strategies and assumptions that guide effective reading, and how to read actively, purposefully, and rhetorically;
    • Make meaningful generalizations/reflections about reading and writing practices and processes;
