Reading Lab Classes
Reading Lab Modules:
ENGLISH 333 - READING SKILLS LAB
ENGLISH 332 - ESL READING LAB
ENGLISH 336 - EXPANDED READING SKILLS LAB
ENGLISH 337 - CRITICAL READING LAB
These lab classes are designed to help improve spelling, reading, comprehension, reading rate, vocabulary, or study skills as you work at your own pace independent of formal class structure. You meet with the lab instructor for diagnosis and program planning, then work independently on the assigned material. These classes offer an excellent opportunity to brush up on skills and earn credit when there is no time in your schedule for a 3 unit class, or to develop needed strategies once the semester has begun and it is too late to enroll in a class. Open entry, open exit - students may register for and complete a lab class anytime throughout the semester.
