EGL 101 - College Composition (E)


College Composition teaches students the skills necessary to read college-level texts critically and to write effective, persuasive, thesis-driven essays for various audiences. The majority of writing assignments require students to respond to and synthesize texts (written and visual) through analysis and/or evaluation. Students also learn how to conduct academic research, navigate the library’s resources, and cite sources properly. The course emphasizes the revision process by integrating self-evaluation, peer response, small-group collaboration, and individual conferences. Additionally, students are offered guided practice in appropriate style, diction, grammar, and mechanics. Beyond completing multiple readings, students produce a minimum of 7,500 words, approximately 5,000 words of which are finished formal writing in four-five assignments, including a 2,000-word persuasive research essay.
