Revised course description: Develops clear, effective writing skills and emphasizes writing as a process. Students practice writing in a variety of forms and modes. Prerequisite: Placement by assessment or ENGL 092 or 093 with a C- or better.
After completing this class, students should be able to:
• Think Critically and Read Analytically: carefully interpret and evaluate claims, beliefs, arguments or issues, reading various texts critically for purposes of interpretation, analysis, synthesis, or evaluation. • Compose and Revise in Context: shape written responses for--and employ style, tone, and mechanical conventions appropriate to--the demands of different audiences and purposes, using various methods of development such as illustration, comparison and contrast, and analysis, and balancing their individual voices with those from other texts. • Reflect, Collaborate & Evaluate: incorporate newly acquired skills, both individually and with peers, to critique their own and others' work, to gain a clearer perspective of habits that may detract from the effectiveness of their own writing, and to develop flexible strategies for revising, editing, and proofreading in response to comments from their instructor and peers.
