EN 105 - First Year Writing


Although the different sections of First Year Writing have an individual focus depending on the readings, every section has a common goal: to develop students’ written communication skills while also emphasizing critical reading and giving students experience in finding, using, and documenting sources for a research paper. In First Year Writing, students write multiple essays with different rhetorical purposes.  Students write their essays in a series of step that make up the writing process. The course also focuses on written language; students learn to use language clearly and precisely in their writing.  They also study the English language narrowly by learning to construct grammatically correct sentences and by becoming more aware of the rhetorical and artistic effects of well-chosen words.
