ENG1121 English Composition II, SP2020

ENG1121 English Composition II, SP2020

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.

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.
