The primary focus of this course will be on reading and writing. The class will use various outside reading materials to sharpen critical reading skills, develop critical thinking skills, expand vocabulary, and write essays. Students will also work on speaking and listening skills by giving oral presentations and leading class discussions. There will be no textbook for the course. Instead, the class will rely on outside readings that correspond to the four academic topics. The four working topics which the class will explore include the Humanities, Science, the Arts, and Business.
