Ginger Stepp, Composition 1, Fall 2017

Course Description:

EngComp005 is the first of UPJ’s standard two-course composition sequence. Designed for students in any major, the writing, reading and analyzation skills you develop here will be beneficial not only in your other courses, but will serve you well in your professional career. This is a writing class, but you will learn that the audience (better known as your reader) and sometimes the situation determine the kind of writing you will use.
This class will ask you to step outside of your five-paragraph, writing-as-a-process thinking previously drilled into you by your high school English teachers. Same basic premise here – but you will expound upon your ideas, offer more examples, evidence, and description. You are going to have to think critically, creatively, and, at times, in ways that may make you a bit uncomfortable, but all designed to hone your skills and prepare you for a lifetime of writing, no matter what career you choose.
