Course Description

English 1101Co is a writing-intensive course designed to strengthen your composition skills. Writing a variety of essays, in addition to a research paper, will help you develop skills such as building an argument, adopting your writing for different needs and situations, interpreting and responding to a text, incorporating secondary source material effectively, and mastering the mechanics of quoting, citing, and documenting sources. The poems, short stories, essays, and newspaper articles we will read together are focused on New York City and urban issues. We will be reading pieces both for their inherent literary value and also as models of composition that you may employ in your writing assignments. Reflecting on your own experiences alongside these texts will ensure active discussion regarding communities, public space, urban art forms, education, class, race, gender, crime, gentrification, and other topics of debate.

The “Co” in English 1101Co stands for corequisite, and means that alongside English 1101 we dedicate time to strengthening reading and writing. We will focus on establishing vocabulary and critical reading skills, scaffolded approaches to writing assignments, correct grammar and punctuation, and positive habits for collegiate success, including note taking and study skills. Enrollment Requirements: Prerequisite of 46-55 on the CUNY Assessment Test in Writing, and/or 46-54 on the ACCUPLACER Reading Test. Or grade of ‘S’ in 090W without writing proficiency and/or grade of ‘S’ in 090R without reading proficiency.
