ENG 101 Introduction to College Writing

Students in English 101 will work individually and in groups to observe and produce writing for both academic and workplace settings. The course explores the writing and revision process and reviews grammar, editing, and proofreading as applied in students’ writing. Writing will grow from different purposes as students compose for varied audiences, formats, and media; this includes business documents, research-based academic and general writing, reflections, and presentations. Critical thinking and information literacy are included in this course. Students who succeed in this course will be able to produce professional-quality writing that is clear, concise, evidence-driven and persuasive. Students are encouraged to complete ENG 101 by the end of their first academic year.
