Study and practice of good writing: topics derived from a variety of personal, academic, and public subjects. Cannot be taken if student has already received a grade of 2.0 or higher in either ENGL 111, ENGL 121, or ENGL 131.
This course fulfills the “C” requirement for composition, and is intended to introduce you to and help you practice college-level academic reading and writing. While it is impossible in our 10-week class to explore every potential type of writing you may be doing in college and in your life as a whole, it is possible to learn writing processes, skills, reading/research strategies, and ways of thinking that you can transfer to other writing situations that you will encounter. This quarter, our course will focus on the theme of “Language, Identity, and Culture,” and we will be reading and writing about the ways in which speech, cultural background, and existing government policies can contribute to one’s sense of identity.
