Each student
taking English 100 will strengthen in his or her ability to read and write with
strength and clarity. Vital to your individual success in this class will be
the ability to understand, interpret, and analyze information. You will be
invited, through reading and writing assignments, to consider your audience and
uncover the most effective delivery for your message. You will be assigned
writings that use sources outside the experiences and knowledge you bring with
you, and you will learn how to cite these sources correctly following Modern
Language Association (MLA) formatting. You will be asked to create time for
writing that will be sufficient for composing written pieces that are thoughtful,
clear, and well revised. You will also be asked to reflect on the process you
go through as you write and to learn about yourself and how you think through
this reflection.
