ACOM 111 - English Composition I


English Composition is designed to help students further develop skills in writing, reading, and critical thinking. The course emphasizes narrowing a topic, constructing a thesis, organizing an essay, developing an argument, writing analytical responses to readings, and effectively utilizing APA documentation. Students will practice several forms of writing: process (multiple drafts of one paper), timed writings, critique essays, and analysis essays. Critical reading is an essential component of effective writing. In order to develop critical reading and thinking skills, students will read examples of successful writing. The skills students cultivate in this class are applicable to all college courses and to any future writing or research tasks.
