The purpose of English 150 is to prepare you for communicating successfully in your academic courses, as well as in your work, personal, and civic lives. Because of what the National Council of Teachers of English calls the importance of 21st-century literacies, while most of the course will be devoted to writing, you will also practice and analyze oral, visual, and electronic communication and you’ll also compile and reflect on a portfolio of your work.
