Reading Courses

Weatherford College offers one level of developmental reading, an integrated reading/writing course, and a non-course-based option for integrated reading/writing. Placement is determined by assessment scores and educational background.

PERMISSION IS REQUIRED FOR THE NON-COURSE BASED OPTION.

Courses

DEVR 0301 is designed for students whose scores on assessment tests indicate a need for improvement in reading comprehension and vocabulary.  This course will not transfer but will count for non-degree credit. Three hours of lecture and twelve hours of tutorials are required.

DIRW 0302 emphasizes basic rhetorical principles needed for college-level reading and writing, particularly development of critical reading skills, analytical skills, and essay development. The major focus is on preparing students to be successful in college-level English and in all courses requiring reading and writing skills. DIRW 0302 will not transfer but will count for non-degree credit. Three hours of lecture and twelve hours of tutorials are required.

NCBO 0100 is a pass/fail course designed as skill-based modular instruction in reading and writing.
