ENGL 1A vs ENGL 1A + 80
The chart below is designed to help you understand the major differences between English 1A and English 1A + 80 and make a decision about which course is right for you. If you still have questions about which course to take after viewing this information, you should contact a counselor to seek additional advice.
|Requirements for Both Courses|
|Both options have identical requirements and expectations. Both 1A classes are transferable to UC/CSU.|
One or more full-length books (fiction or non-fiction). Academic reading with in- depth analysis and complex concepts.
5-7 essays of 3-5 pages based on analysis of assigned texts and response to ideas
in the texts, plus at least one research paper of 7-10 pages.
|Student Performance Expectations|
The rigor, difficulty, and performance expectations are identical to Freshman Composition
courses taught at private colleges or state universities.
The major difference between the options is that the corequisite course (English 80)
meets for one additional hour, once a week. This extra hour of coursework is a support
course designed to help students be successful in the English 1A.
