Section Description

Yes, you already know how to write. Or, no, you believe you can't write and never will. Either way, this is not why you're here, engaging with this text, about to enter the landscape of Written Expression. Yes, this college composition course will teach you how to become a better writer—and editor of your own work; but, more than that, the projects, assignments, and explorations on which you're about to embark will give you new eyes as a reader and writer. You will see the written word—others' and your own—in a discerning light. And you will take this newfound knowledge—critical ways of thinking, close reading, writing, and revising—with you on your future academic voyage and beyond. You will hear not only your own words but also the term, “craft,” as you write, revise, and revise again. Know that how you feel and think about writing will never be the same at the end of this voyage of discovery. For now, trust the process.

Section Expectation

Rhetorical discernment: To write for varying purposes and audiences, develop texts with sufficient detail, astute organization, and appropriate documentation, diction, and style. Critical reading: To read critically by engaging with ideas and texts, properly summarizing, paraphrasing, and quoting others’ ideas while effectively integrating them with and developing one’s own ideas. Substantive revision: Through persistent inquiry and informed by feedback from peers and/or the instructor, to compose and revise so that texts and ideas grow in effectiveness and complexity. Information literacy: To access and work effectively and ethically with print and digital sources, including: learning to discern searchable key words within a complex research question; distinguishing between primary and secondary and scholarly and popular resources; critically evaluating sources for relevance, currency, authority, and bias; and managing and appropriately documenting information sources. Note: Students will need to be available most evenings, M-F, to post responses in Discussion Board, participate in workshops, and submit assignments.
