EGL 101 - College Composition (E)


College Composition (E) teaches students the skills necessary to read college-level texts critically and to write effective, persuasive, thesis-driven print and digital texts 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 approximately 5,000 words of finished formal writing in three-five assignments, including a persuasive research essay of at least 2,000 words.
