Students write a minimum of four essays in multiple drafts with emphasis on critical thinking, reading, focus, organization, clarity, and grammatical correctness. Students become familiar with the process of composing academic writing: producing rough draft material, revising, and editing. Readings across the curriculum provide material for discussion and analysis of ideas. By the end of this course, students should be prepared for the longer essays and research papers that EN 102 requires. A writing sample is expected of all students at the beginning and the end of the course to assess student-writing competency and determine progress in writing course sequence.
