Writing 1 is an introductory course in college composition, concentrating on analysis and interpretation. The course focuses on how the student writer might present and develop a particular point of view in a clear, logical, and convincing manner. Students read from a variety of texts offering different ideas, traditions, contexts, and cultural perspectives. Students then write essays in response to issues and concerns derived from a critical reading of those texts, taking into account the writer’s audience, point of view, purpose and tone. The course features extensive individual and small-group instruction in composition, and extensive practice in writing (totaling at least 8,000 words). Credit may be earned in either WR 1 or 1H, but not both. C-ID: ENGL 100. NR
