As our paired courses were created to combine both Reading and Writing, a Reading and Writing Diagnostic exam has been implemented and will replace the traditional writing sample.  There are five reading comprehension questions and an essay. Please allow your students sufficient time to complete the Diagnostic, as it will help both the student and instructor gauge where students place in the class.  You may find the following breakdown helpful:    

   ·         30 minutes – Instructor Introduction, Course overview, and syllabus review

   ·         50 minutes – Students review the reading and complete the reading assessment

   ·         60 minutes – Students complete the writing sample (4 -5 paragraph essay)




Welcome to the DE 020 Academic English II LibGuide!

I would first like to take the opportunity to welcome our returning instructors.  This course is designed to assist students in developing the critical reading and process writing skills necessary for success in college-level courses. Students must demonstrate active reading, comprehension and textual analysis skills as a point of reference for written analyses which integrate textual support, using appropriate MLA formatting and citation in essay assignments and research projects.

This guide will provide the necessary materials to get you started this semester as well as guide you along the way as you plan and prepare to teach your course.  You will find the necessary syllabi, calendar, rubrics, portfolio information, and both informal and formal writing assignments.

Please tour this guide, and make use of any materials that will help you throughout the semeser.  I can be contacted at  for any questions, comments or concerns related to the Level II course or course materials.

Have a Great semester!
