ENGL 100 Strategies for University Writing (3)
This course focuses on the study and application of academic discourse. Students learn to write clearly, using correct grammar and good organization; apply principles of unity, coherence, and emphasis in paragraph and essay construction; write unified and economical sentences with effective transition, coordination, and subordination; use different patterns in writing, such as comparison and contrast, description, narration, and process development; plan, analyze, revise, and proofread their own writing; and begin to incorporate readings or other source materials into their writing. The emphasis throughout is on the rhetorical strategies of academic writing.
