En101 English Composition I 4 credits
The focus in this course is on students' written texts with an emphasis on situated rhetorical genres - students write for real audiences and get a sense of real situations with real consequences. Students may compose profiles, reviews, web content, or work in a variety of other genres, and are introduced to a process-based approach to academic writing. Questions of style and grammar are investigated as rhetorical elements of a text, and students are introduced to conventions of documentation and academic integrity. Elements of public speaking will also be introduced. Progression from En101 to En102 is governed by policies described in the Academic Policies section of the College Catalogue.
