Course Information

Course Number: 1101 Co ML

Course Title: Composition 1 with writing support

Course Description:

This is a course in effective essay writing, academic reading skills and basic research techniques including use of the library. You will be responsible for reading and considering demanding readings assigned for classroom discussion and as a basis for essay writing. 

Every City Tech (and CUNY) student takes Composition I, which features reading and writing assignments that will help to prepare you for college and beyond. Together we will work on communicating effectively, building an argument, adapting your writing for different needs and situations, interpreting and responding to a text, and incorporating and citing secondary source material. We will be reading pieces both for their inherent literary value and also as models for our own writing projects. Sharing your own ideas and experiences and adding your voice to our discussions will enrich our class community.
