Prerequisites: or appropriate score on assessment test.

Because this course is individualized and not structured as a classroom
course, students must be self-disciplined. In other words, they must
organize their schedules so as to include the hours required to complete
this course (approximately 20 hours spent in the W.C.). During the time
that the student is in the W.C., he/she must make good use of that time by
completing at least 3/4 of the booklet and showing an understanding of the
skills taught. Tests will be taken by the student to prove his/her
comprehension of the material. A 70% or better indicates that the student
may proceed to the next lesson. When the student has completed 20 hours in
the W.C. and passed with 70% comprehension 3/4 of the booklet, he/she must
take a final exam which will be a comprehensive review of the
lessons/skills learned. The student has the option to cover some of the
material on computer programs. MicroLab provides mastery tests for some of
the curriculum covered in this class. The mastery test may be used as a
replacement for the written test. If the student chooses to take the
computer tests, the instructor or tutor will document the score in the
folder with a date and his/her initials. Again, a 70% comprehension must
be reached.

Many people would not think to check if their property is in a conservation area; however it only takes one phone call to Sheffield council to find the answer. This is not something to be ignored, as the conservation officers can request that you remove our new windows if they do not meet their requirements. This is usually down to the external colour and style of the window openings.

Composition I focuses on writing nonfiction prose suitable in its expression and content to both its occasion and its audience. Students will have an opportunity to improve in all phases of the writing process: discovering ideas, gathering information, planning and organizing, drafting, revising and editing. Each text written in the course should clearly communicate a central idea or thesis, contain sufficient detail to be lively and convincing, reflect the voice of the writer and use carefully edited standard written English. Some sections of this course are tailored to meet the needs of specific student populations, such as veterans or Honors students, or students in specific programs, such as Hospitality or Technology. By the end of the semester, students should have completed at least 20 pages (approximately 5,000 words) of revised and edited prose. Students must take the JCCC writing assessment test or submit an ACT score of 19 or higher before enrolling. For more information, see a JCCC counselor. 3 hrs. lecture/wk.
