|Title:||ENGL 151- 09, Critical Reading, Thinking and Writing, Fall 1998|
|Series/Report no.:||Syllabi CRN|
|Abstract:||This course focuses on the processes of reading critically, thinking through an argument, and setting forth that argument in effective prose. The class dynamics will consist primarily of discussion both of the reading assignments and the papers you write; the final grade will be based on your classroom practice and the grades you receive on papers. The goals of the class are to hone your skills as a critical reader, identify any problems and develop your fluency with the skills of the language, and review and expand your understanding and ability to organize and write an effective expository essay at the college level, including the integration of external textual materials. In particular, you will focus on seven elements of essay composition: thesis, organization, argument, development, evidence, style, and mechanics.|
