This course prepares students for entry level College Reading. Major topics include argument, bias, supporting details, fact and opinion, inferences, main ideas, organizational patterns and relationships, purpose and tone, and vocabulary in context. This course is targeted for 12th graders whose placement scores are below the established cut score indicating that they are not “college-ready” in Reading. Successful completion of this course while in high school will exempt student from further CPT testing/postsecondary remediation if they enroll in a community college within 2 years of completion. Successful completion requires a grade of “C” or better in the course to include a passing score on the Florida College Basic Skills Exit Test, as determined by the partnering postsecondary institution. This is the same exit examination administered to students enrolling in the postsecondary developmental education reading course at the college.
