ENG 094 Successful Writing

3 Credits

This course develops the student’s ability to express ideas clearly in essays of adequate length that show facility with language and an understanding of an essay’s structure. Designed to motivate the student to engage in writing as a communication process and not just an implementation of correct rules, the course helps the student develop his/her basic analytic skills, such as abstracting and generalizing, and incorporate those skills in the writing of an essay from thesis to conclusion. Through a process approach to writing, the student is introduced to drafting, revising, and editing techniques. In addition, he/she may engage in peer feedback workshops and, when possible, threaded discussions in electronic environments. In addition to learning structures for communicating ideas, the student is also introduced to principles of language choices, word usage, as well as rules for varied sentence structures and grammar. To enroll in ENG 101 , Rhetoric and Writing I, the student must pass this course, or he/she will be required to repeat it.

This course can only be taken on a Pass/Fail basis.
(Credits for this course are not applicable toward a degree)
