What is English 12?
English 12 is a series of one-unit, self-paced supplemental English review classes offered to all students who either need help in their current courses or need assistance in repeating a course. Each student receives a tailored class lesson plan to meet his or her individual and contextual needs, regardless of his or her currently enrolled English and non-English courses. Students receive a grade of Pass or No Pass based on a two hour minimum weekly time-on-task commitment in the English Center computer lab, attendance of at least two workshops, and successful performance on Diagnostic Pre-Tests, Individualized Study Plan Exercises, and Diagnostic Post-Tests.
Currently, there are two course offerings:
English 12A: Basic English Review
In this course, students will develop their skills in Sentence structure, Grammar, Punctuation, Spelling, and Reading. This class is ideal for students taking classes across the curriculum, students preparing to take standardized tests, or students who need to develop skill areas before repeating a failed course.
English 12E: English Composition Review
In this course, students will develop their skills in Main idea or thesis development, Paragraph structure, Paragraph development, Essay structure, Essay development, Researched writing, and Reading. This class is ideal for students taking classes across the curriculum, students building their paragraph and essay writing skills, or students who need to develop skill areas before repeating a failed course.
Computer Skills Advisory
Please note that these courses are not online courses.
Students are required to work in the English Center Computer Lab on the MySkillsLab class material for a minimum of 2 hours per week per class section. Students will be required to attend an orientation, a minimum of two workshops, and an exit meeting with the instructor. All class work can be accessed through the MySkillsLab website: http://www.pearsonmylabandmastering.com
Students enrolling in this course should have a basic familiarity with computer terms and use, including word-processing, document manipulation, email, and online services.
Tutorial assistance is available through the English Center tutorial staff to aide students in better understanding the course material presented in the students’ individual Study Plans. Please keep in mind the tutors are there to help students better understand the material, not to provide correct answers.
The objective of this class is to work on the MySkillsLab class material and satisfactorily complete the Diagnostic Pre-Tests in Reading and Writing, the Study Plan exercises with a 70% or above average, specific writing assignments, and the Diagnostic Post-Tests in Reading and Writing.
English 12A students will be required to write a paragraph to be turned in for review by the end of the semester.
English 12E students will be expected to write two paragraphs during the semester and an essay to be turned in for review by the end of the semester.
All English 12 students must attend a minimum of two workshops during the semester.
These assignments, along with the class time and workshop attendance, will determine final student grades of Pass or No Pass.
