Reading and writing are processes, not events. The journey is as important as the destination. Students in this course build upon their professional and personal reading and writing experiences and prepare to read with authority and to write with confidence in college-level study and the workplace. A Personalized Learning Plan provides practice in grammar and usage related to individual needs. Using relevant case studies drawn from multiple college majors, guided reading, critical thinking, writing, and revision as tools, students will master academic writing skills such as the development of arguments supported by evidence. Assignments emphasize a milestone process through which students complete weekly tasks that build on each other and result in a short essay for the final project. Students in the course learn and are provided with practice in basic elements of research and attribution.
