The Reading Program at Irvine Valley College prepares students for the demands of reading expectations in their college course work, increases their reading rate and comprehension levels, and allows them to read and write critically and analytically, including college level reading found in both college text books and articles. RD 74 is a critical reading course designed to teach students to read and write analytically. This course focuses on analysis of written arguments.
