ENGL 100A - Basic Academic Writing I
(2 cr)The first of a two-semester course sequence, ENGL 100A is designed to enhance critical thinking, reading, and writing skills as they support academic essay writing, particularly the argument essay. The two semesters stretch the same material as ENGL 101 in order to give students more time to master the course objectives. ENGL 100A emphasizes instruction on the criteria of thesis, academic essay structure, critical reading skills, and critical thinking skills. An emphasis is placed on the reading and writing processes, particularly the stage of revision. Students will be required to attend 100 minutes a week of lecture and 50 minutes a week of tutoring. Completing both ENGL 100A and ENGL 100B serves as an alternate to ENGL 101 , and as such serves a prerequisite to ENGL 102 , 103 , or 104 .
