ENG1101CO, English Composition I Co-Requisite, Spring 2020

ENG1101CO, English Composition I Co-Requisite, Spring 2020

English 1101CO is a writing-intensive course designed to strengthen your composition skills. Writing a variety of essays, in addition to a research project, will help you develop skills such as building an argument, adapting 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. 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. The “CO” in English 1101CO stands for corequisite, which means that in addition to the English 1101 coursework, we will dedicate time to strengthening fundamental reading and writing skills. We will focus on enhancing vocabulary and critical reading skills, using step-by-step approaches to writing assignments, improving grammar and punctuation skills, and cultivating positive habits for college success, including note-taking and study skills.

ENG090R Developmental Reading I

ENG090R Developmental Reading I

ENG 090R is a course in reading and critical thinking skills focusing on improving reading proficiency to meet college-level reading requirements. We will be reviewing dictionary use, vocabulary development, cognitive strategies for reading, demonstrating reading comprehension in writing, paragraph analysis, main ideas, supporting details, various patterns of organization, and drawing inferences. We will also work on effective strategies for approaching readings from across the curriculum, assignments, and other helpful study skills.

ENG1101

ENG1101

The essays collected in your anthology are focused on New York City and urban issues. Reflecting on your own urban experiences alongside these essays will help you become an active participant in discussions about communities, public space, urban art forms, homelessness, crime, gentrification, the environment, and other topics of debate. Thinking critically about cities will also help you learn to use writing as a technology for managing competing ideas and clarifying and defending your own.
