The goal of EDSS 60: Education and Student Success is to develop the learning skills, study strategies and self-awareness necessary for students to experience success as life-long learners.

This course models the traditional academic English course, developing skills in the context of reading and writing about literature, including Canadian literature from a variety of genres, in order to prepare learners for post-secondary academic English courses. Two main goals are for learners to develop awareness and appreciation for literature and to hone their ability to express themselves orally and in writing.
