Language Arts for Success Course Description

This course focuses on the effective use of language arts—listening, conversing, reading, and writing—for academic and professional contexts, purposes, and applications. Students explore, research and practice key strategies for successful academic and professional use of language arts. Additional focus is spent on semantics. Semantics is the study of meaning, as inherent at the levels of words, phrases, sentences, and larger units of communication. By the end of this course, students should be able to do the following:

  1. Identify and articulate basic theories and best practices for effective use of language arts for academic and professional success
  2. Anticipate, describe, and apply key strategies for successful understanding and comprehension in new contexts and situations based on the use of language arts
  3. Apply language arts skills and techniques to professional and academic contexts and purposes  
  4. Transfer learning of the professional and academic use of language arts to future, novel contexts and purposes as life-long learners
  5. Edit and anticipate the use of words, phrases, sentences, and texts by evaluating for overall effectiveness in the use of language arts

Academic teachers prepare lectures and discussions for classes of 60 students on average, and multimedia classrooms are assigned for these courses. The full-time teaching load for academics is 12 class hours a week, providing ample time for preparation and meeting with students. Textbooks and other resources, including supervision, are provided.
