ENGL 101A - Writing and Rhetoric A

(2 cr) The first of a two-semester course sequence that stretches the same material as ENGL 101, in order to give students more time to master the course objectives. This course is designed to enhance critical thinking, reading, and writing skills as they support academic writing, literacy, and/or rhetoric. The course will emphasize the study and practice of the writing process.  Students will examine works of published authors, as well as each other’s writing, to augment the course’s focus on the revision process. Students will be required to attend 100 minutes a week of lecture and 50 minutes a week of tutoring. Completing both ENGL 101A and ENGL 101B serves as an alternate to ENGL 101 , and a prerequisite to ENGL 102 . Previously numbered/titled ENGL 100A, Basic Academic Writing I.

  Prerequisites: Satisfactory score on appropriate placement tests.

Completion of ENGL 101A and ENGL 101B satisfies the Tier 1 ENGL 101 Core Curriculum writing requirement. C or better is required.
