ENGL 1101 (Composition I) focuses on text-based writing: students should be reading various sorts of texts and learning to develop and defend appropriate arguments in response to these texts. The sorts of writing produced in this class should help students develop skills appropriate to the many disciplines that require a thoughtful analysis of and written response to different texts.
Students must have the department's required handbook, A Writer's Resource.
Choice of additional texts (other than the handbook) are left to the instructor's discretion.
Please see Bonnie Adams if you have questions concerning appropriate text selection.
