ACS 105: Advanced Vocabulary
This course is designed to expand vocabulary and improve word recognition skills for college-bound students. Major areas of emphasis include the study of word derivations, context clues, dictionary skills, vocabulary acquisition strategies, pronunciation skills and some work with American idioms. An American historical novel is read and discussed to provide practice for new word acquisition skills. An individual final project is assigned where students teach specialized vocabulary from the academic area of their own choosing to the rest of the class.

What Students Say About Online Classes
“My teacher posted his lectures and activities on Blackboard weekly, so I was able to complete all required class work and tests at my own leisure. Most importantly, I learned a ton in the course, and my excellent instructor was available by email around the clock.”—Wendy L., 48
