Course information

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
Students enrolling in this course should have a basic familiarity with computer terms and use, including word-processing, document manipulation, email, and online services.

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    


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.
