ENGL 1157 - English Composition 1

College of Liberal Arts, Education and Human Development

- Credits: 3

This course is the first in a two-semester sequence; it introduces students to the rhetorical strategies, critical thinking skills, and conventions they will need to engage in wide variety of discourse they encounter in and out of the classroom. Students produce a minimum of three projects, comprised of no less than 5000 words (total), 3000 of which are formally assessed. The assignments that lead to the production of these three projects introduce students to the conventions of a variety of genres and media, teach students how to conduct research and to integrate their findings into their own writings, invest students in the process of writing (inquiring, researching, drafting, reflecting, revising), and create opportunities for students to understand how audience and purpose govern the content, scope, organization, and expression of their ideas
