28.  Give the reason(s) for creating, revising, or deleting this course.  (If new course, what evidence of need for this course exists?)

 

        The current English 98 course does not meet the needs of students who require instruction in college-level reading techniuqes in addition to writing instruction. A course which combines both reading and composition skills helps students develop a critical understanding of the texts they read, prompting students to produce high quality written work based upon text (a key academic skill). The redesign will  enhance reading and writing outcomes. 

 

29.  Feasibility.  (Can the department commit the resources necessary to support the course for the proposed number of students and offer it with sufficient frequency to meet program objectives?  Please explain.  Note:  Approval of the Curriculum Committee does not imply approval of funding.)
