Welcome to Skills English!

In this course students will be working on building their strengths in both academic and real-world reading and writing skills. Our overarching goal is to help students build confidence and independence. This includes but is not limited to:


  • Reading for information (flyers, publications, schedules, etc.)
  • Reading for pleasure (novels, magazines, etc.)
  • Academic, personal, and professional writing
