Rhetoric and Composition (ENGLISH 1101)



This course is designed to encourage students to:

  • self-consciously evaluate their own writing practices
  • learn strategies to make their writing more effective
  • apply their understanding to expository and research writing.

Through this course, the student should develop familiarity and comfort with pre-writing, drafting, and revision via the practice of composing essays, including a research paper.

Students will also be exposed to multiple lessons in grammar, punctuation and mechanics. The class will be conducted through the use of large-group discussions, small-group work, journal writing, reading, private conferences with the teacher, student presentations, and the use of computers.
