ENGL 0101 - English Composition I

Credits: 3

A writing course that provides instruction in the process of composing academic essays. Students strengthen techniques in three stages – pre-writing, drafting and revising – in order to compose well-structured papers written in proficient American English. This course covers the fundamentals of rhetoric, research methods, critical reading of texts, and sentence and paragraph development.  In addition to writing informally throughout the semester, writers compose at least 16 pages of formal writing, including at least one documented essay, and produce a final portfolio.  All students must take this course the first semester of their freshman year.  Students need permission of the Composition Coordinator or the English Department Chair to withdraw from this class.
