LSC-Kingwood offers two new English courses

Published on: February 09, 2011

A high demand for more English classes this semester will be met at Lone Star College-Kingwood.

The college will offer two second eight week classes, ENGL 1301 and ENGL 0307, March 21 through May 15. ENGL 0307 will be on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8-11:06 a.m. and ENGL 1301 will be on Tuesday and Thursday from 1:30-4:15 p.m.

“The purpose of these classes is to allow students to complete courses toward their degree plan in a compressed time frame,” said Cindy Baker, professor and chair of the English department. “The students will cover the same material in eight weeks that they would ordinarily cover in our regular 16 week semesters.”

ENGL 0307 is the second course in the developmental writing course sequence designed for students who have a stronger background in grammar skills but need further help developing paragraphs and short themes. Lab work will be assigned to reinforce class activities. This course carries institutional credit, but it will not transfer nor be used to meet degree requirements. Prerequisites are ENGL 0306 or 0374 or placement by testing.

ENGL 1301 is a multi-paragraph composition course that includes language study and the mechanics of writing with examples from selected readings. Students may be required to achieve a departmentally approved score on a proficiency test before receiving credit for the course. Prerequisites are ENGL 0305 and ENGL 0307 or 0356 or placement by testing.

Interested students can register for these courses starting now through the first day of class. For more information on ENGL 1307 contact Cindy Baker at Cindy.Baker@lonestar.eduor on ENGL 0307, contact Dalia Khalaf at Dalia.M.Khalaf@lonestar.edu.
