Primary Instructor:

This course emphasizes an intensive one-on-one approach to teaching writing, including bi-weekly student-teacher conferences. Individualized attention to key features of college writing — analysis in addition to summary; revision for focus and clarity; development as well as generation of ideas; style built on a solid grasp of conventions of grammar and punctuation — develops students’ skills and confidence, and prepares students for the type of writing most often assigned and valued in University classes. Typical class activities include discussion and analysis of readings, explanation and modeling of writing strategies and techniques, and peer review workshops. Students typically complete 4-6 revised, polished essays of varying lengths, as well as several informal writing assignments. Creation of an electronic portfolio enables students to integrate technology into their learning and reflect upon their development as writers.

Note:

Writing 100 is designed to help students of all levels improve their writing, but is best suited to those who have yet to fulfill the First-Year Writing Requirement. Upper-level students should have a compelling academic reason for enrolling in Writing 100.

Normal waitlist procedures apply for students who attend the first two classes. Students who wish to join Writing 100 after the first two class sessions must email the instructor to set up a meeting to discuss enrolling. Based on this discussion, the student and instructor will then make a determination on whether or not it is appropriate for the student to enroll.
