Through this sequence, students develop multiple ways of interpreting texts, critically connecting ideas from one text to others as well as to their own experiences. The course focuses on the writing and editing process needed to shape the meaning of a text in order to meet readers’ expectations and to enhance students’ fluency with academic writing conventions. Varied reading samples are used for class discussion and written responses. Note: Students must earn a grade of C or better to take ENG 101. (F, Sp, Su)
