Students in this course explore multiple creative writing and academic pieces in order to enhance their critical reading skills. "Critical reading means that a reader applies certain processes, models, questions, and theories that result in enhanced clarity and comprehension." The ability to read critically has a great impact on success in every other subject as well as in every day life. Students in this course are encouraged to overcome the desire to just "skim" a text and instead learn to analyze meaning and context. By learning to engage the text, seek an author's purpose, and extrapolate ideas based on the readings, students will improve in other skills as well, such as critical thinking and writing. All students will participate in a report and presentation at the end of the course.

**Students are expected to come to every class prepared with pencils or pens & a notebook. Laptops and headphones are NOT allowed.**
