Composition I

In this course we will work together to further your research
and writing skills in a collaborative setting that emphasizes peer to peer
interaction and group work (small and large). To this end, you will work with
your peers during most class sessions.

We will work toward an understanding of research and writing as
non-linear but cumulative processes, and you will work to become comfortable
writing in different modes and styles so that you can respond to the complex
and varied challenges you face as a student and an informed citizen. We will use
technology as a means of gathering new information and being exposed to
multiple points of view.

you will complete this course with a renewed appreciation for the value and
importance of collaboration and a new (or refined) set of writing skills that
will allow you to excel in future writing (but not only writing!) assignments.
