Course Description:

This course is an examination of the English language as used in an academic setting. Students will acquire and demonstrate reading, writing, and listening skills appropriate to post-secondary institutions in the United States. This course provides an introduction to the expectations, history, and design of English-speaking academic institutions, and is designed for non-native speakers of English.

Essential Objectives:

1. Recognize and consistently apply the English language in a post-secondary academic setting.
2. Employ vocabulary and grammatical structures of the English language in verbal and written expression to: a. Communicate and solicit basic personal and academic information, including program/major, course schedule, learning resources (texts, library, learning assistance), program requirements, and habits of success. b. Participate in increasingly complex interpersonal exchanges, such as introductions, greetings, and requests associated with success in academic institutions. c. Identify and comprehend academic jargon necessary for success in higher education. d. Describe essential elements of academic life, including but not limited to, the connection between class and independent work, necessary level of investment, progression of courses from introductory to advanced, and the scaffolding and trajectory of educational institutions in the United States (primary school, secondary school, advanced certificates, Associate’s, Bachelor’s, Master’s, Doctorate). e. Demonstrate the ability to recall information and recombine it using their own words in order to respond effectively to questions on selected academic topics.
3. Describe basic features, traditions, and elements of daily academic life in the United States.
4. Apply learned vocabulary, grammatical, and organizational structures to write academic papers.
5. Read and interpret materials from diverse academic disciplines and use English to demonstrate their comprehension, reflect on their reading, and apply their insights to other contexts.
6. Explain and apply cultural conventions regarding citation and academic honesty, including plagiarism, as practiced in U.S institutions.

Accessibility Services for Students with Disabilities: CCV strives to mitigate barriers to course access for students with documented disabilities. To request accommodations, please

  1. Provide disability documentation to the Accessibility Coordinator at your academic center.
  2. Request an appointment to meet with accessibility coordinator to discuss your request and create an accommodation plan.
  3. Once created, students will share the accommodation plan with faculty. Please note, faculty cannot make disability accommodations outside of this process.

Academic Honesty: CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
