ENGL 1095 - English Composition with Essentials

Arts & Sciences
Student writers learn in this class to pay close attention to the rhetorical situation and the changing ways that a given text’s audience, purpose, and genre determine the best methods and strategies for writing. This class is specifically devoted to some of the most common types of college-level essay: argument, analysis, and evaluation. English Composition covers the various elements expected to appear in these genres, such as thesis statements, use of evidence and APA citations, demonstration of standard edited English, and logical reasoning. Students will have the opportunity to join scholarly and public debates through discussion and through the critical analysis of course texts. Reading well leads to writing well; by understanding the connections between idea and written form, students will learn to make better decisions as writers. In addition, students will learn to generate texts in a systematic way: through brainstorming, drafting, peer collaboration, and revision.
