Reading and Writing co-requisite

UK 125: APP Reading and Writing is a one-credit hour, part-of-term (8 weeks) course that is designed to support students enrolled in their CORE composition and communication course (CIS 110 or WD 110).  

Students can expect to practice critical reading strategies, engage in the research process, and produce multiple pieces of writing. UK 125 is co-taught by a Graduate Teaching Assistant and an Undergraduate Peer Instructor. Students will also engage heavily with our Integrated Success Coaching program through individual appointments and group coaching.  

By the end of this course, students will demonstrate college readiness through the development of transferable skills necessary for success across disciplines and within their major. Specifically, students will be able to process, retain, and analyze multiple texts as a key process in producing well-constructed composition and communication assignments within future coursework.
