Details about this class

Hi Students,

In our learning community we'll focus on these topics: reading effectiveness, critical reading, and information literacy.  All of these help you be more successful in other college-level classes.

This course is online and remote. For the remote portion, there will be a REQUIRED live Zoom class meeting, every Tuesday from 10-to11:50 am. For the online portion, you will be accessing D2L Brightspace course content and completing the activities on your own.

Here's the Spring 2022 Syllabus for you to review and get more information about the course.

See you soon!
