Course Synopsis

The course is aimed at providing students with levels of reading effectiveness of various kinds of reading materials. The application of five levels of reading elements will be required of students in pair and group tasks. Emphasis however, will be on fluency, vocabulary and comprehension in a variety of reading activities. Students will be introduced to five different types of reading such as silent reading and shared reading. Most part of the course will engage students in reading activities by using three different techniques and strategies, which are repeated, extensive and intensive reading. This will require students to advance from reading graded materials to authentic engineering texts. At this stage, students are expected to display certain level of comprehension effectiveness and fluency. Students will also use language software and courseware in class activities as part of the learning process and assessments. This course, through its contents and activities, is intended to develop critical thinking and creativity in students through teamwork and exploitation of learning capabilities. By the end of semester, students should be able to: CO1: Apply the five reading elements in reading different types of texts. CO2: Use the different types of reading to read various reading materials. CO3: Demonstrate comprehension of information from a variety of reading resources through the use of the three reading techniques and strategies. CO4: Use language software and courseware in reading activities CO5: Demonstrate reading effectiveness in a form of listening, speaking and writing activities Assessment 1: Quiz (Unit 1 & 2) Assessment 2: Repeated Reading 10% 20% 30% 40% 100%
