This course introduces students to college-level academic writing. Its primary emphasis is on effective composition strategies in response to readings (clear and concise theses and topic sentences; ample and varied support; effective introductions, conclusions and transitions; clear and appealing style). A strong secondary emphasis is on critical evaluation of readings from across the curriculum, whether the readings are assigned or independently gathered in research. Careful documentation of source materials is expected of all students, with MLA style emphasized in class. Grammar and usage are reviewed as needed and standard, edited English is expected of all students. Students that earn less than a C- must repeat course in the following semester.
