MxCC Offers Intensive Reading & Writing Workshop

Oct 18, 2013 – Students planning to attend MxCC who are looking to refresh their skills in reading and writing are invited to attend MxCC’s Reading and Writing Intensive Summer Workshop this January.  The workshop is designed to assist students with essay writing, grammar and reading skills.  This workshop is particularly beneficial for students placing in developmental writing and reading.  At the end of the workshop, students may retake a placement test to see if they can progress to another level of English.

Many college-level courses require English prerequisites. Thus, strong reading and writing skills are important to be more successful in college studies. To benefit from the lessons, students are asked to make the full two-week workshop commitment. With strong reading, writing, and comprehension skills, students will accomplish more in their programs of study and ultimately in their careers.

The first workshop will run from January 6-10 and January 13-15, 2014 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The second workshop will run from January 27-31 and February 3-5, 2014 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Both courses will meet in Snow Hall on the Middletown campus. The cost is $50. Students who register for the first workshop may consider taking a late start course if eligible. For more information about this program, please contact Professor Donna Bontatibus at 860-343-5802 or at Download the flyer here.
