Course Description

COURSE DESCRIPTION: This is a course in effective essay writing and basic research techniques, including use of the library. Demanding readings are assigned for classroom discussion and as a basis for essay writing.
Taken together, the courses (ENG1101 and ENG1121) in the First-Year Writing Program at the New York City College of Technology seek to develop student competencies in five general categories: rhetorical knowledge; writing and reading processes; critical thinking, reading, writing, and research; composing in manual and digital environments; and knowledge of academic conventions. Individual faculty incorporate these competencies into their courses in different ways, but all faculty are able to demonstrate how their courses attend to these matters. 4 hours, 3 credits Prerequisites: CUNY certification in reading and writing.
LEARNING OUTCOMES: Please see the attached sheet and keep it handy (given out in class). We will review these during the beginning and throughout the semester. By the end of the term, our goal is to meet each of the learning outcomes. This course syllabus is designed to help us do so.
