Course Description

English 1101 serves as the introductory composition course, and it aims to develop students’ reading, writing and analytical skills while fostering awareness of their own discursive practices. The course aims to have students critically reflect on their own literacy practices and to attend to them in order to become more nuanced language practitioners. Students begin the course in a fairly conventional way, by writing what are usually called literacy narratives, though these may be broadly defined by individual Instructors to include larger concerns such as language diversity, orality, and language and technology. While academic discourse may play a role in the course, the program’s primary emphasis is with students’ ability to negotiate multiple contexts and writing situations rather than becoming familiar with only academic language.
