ENGL 1111 - College Writing
Offers students the opportunity to move across texts and genres (such as expository essays, fiction, or film), thus focusing on the basics of compositions and the use of metaphor, organization, selection, gaps and silences, tone, and point of view. Through a series of sequenced assignments, students read fiction and nonfiction texts of some complexity, make the critical interpretation of these texts the occasion for their own writing, write expository prose that makes use of a variety of rhetorical strategies, conduct library research when appropriate, reflect on and assess their writing, and refine their documentation skills. Requires students to write multiple drafts and emphasizes the writing process as well as the quality of the finished product. Students must keep a portfolio of their work.
