The purpose of this text, or should we say guide, is to help all students in English composition classes - whether stand-alone or coupled with reading courses - understand the connections and the cohesive aspect of reading and writing. The authors used their own years of teaching both reading and writing, for all levels in college, to explain concepts in a straightforward and clear manner for students. The goal is that this becomes a resource - a FREE resource – students can return to time and time again when they have questions or need a refresher even after their English composition course ends.
This resource includes online homework and quizzes, lecture notes for instructors (some with guided note packets or student versions), sample syllabi, sample schedules, and sample exams used in a corequisite College Algebra course, where students are enrolled in both Intermediate and College Algebra simultaneously. All of the resources can be used for a stand alone College Algebra course, with minor editing.
