  • In order to keep English 101 courses unified, instructors will assign the following: o Reading: Assign to read at least twelve texts (such as essays, articles, chapters of books in a variety of styles, modes, and purposes by both student and professional writers) along with either a novel, collection of short stories, or book-length work of literary nonfiction o Writing: Require 4000 to 5000 words of revised/edited prose, or the equivalent of five to seven individual essays Research on student chosen topics--102
  • forms of writing encoutered while in community college (narrative, informative, analysis and persuasive)
  • Faculty use different methods for achieving the course outcomes; I would like to see more writing about writing approaches, but I can't honestly say that people are using that approach despite how smart it is!!!!
  • Faculty choose content within parameters of course description and SLOs.
  • depends on instructor
  • argumentation and research
  • argument, analysis, synthesis
  • accessing analyzing using information (AAUI)
  • academic writing and argument
  • writing topics determined by the instructor but research paper and wordage required
