Various; distance learning format.
Dates: 

June 2021 - Present.

Instructional delivery format: 
Proficiency exam
Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to use critical reading and informed writing to generate ideas, and edit and revise effectively, while recognizing the two as distinct activities; develop strategies for generating critical distance when rereading; develop a reasonable and informed system of criteria for judging texts; demonstrate the ability to produce coherent texts within common college-level forms; demonstrate the ability to revise and improve such texts; and demonstrate the ability to research a topic, develop an argument, and organize supporting details.

Instruction: 

English Composition I is a class in which students develop critical thinking abilities by reading and writing, increase their rhetorical strategies, and practice writing processes. In this course, students will get the chance to do formal and informal writing, respond to various readings, be involved in group workshops, and revise formal writing with the help of peer response. The instructor will endeavor to make this virtual classroom a safe space that respects and values honesty and diversity and a place where students can share their ideas without fear of reprisal. Having a safe and civil atmosphere for learning will depend on all participants. In addressing classmates, or the instructor, students may argue vigorously, indeed passionately, but must maintain the same respect for others as they wish them to maintain toward them.

Credit recommendation: 

In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 3 semester hours (5/21).
