WR 399 ACCELERATED INTRODUCTION TO COLLEGE WRITING
5 Units - 5 hours lecture
Prerequisite: RD 370
Corequisite: WR 380
This is an accelerated course that combines WR 301 and WR 201 and is designed to develop skills in the basic conventions and expectations of college essay writing. It introduces students to critical reading, writing, and reasoning. Students employ a text-based, process-centered approach to writing essays in response to assigned readings from a variety of college-level texts. This course covers how to state and support a thesis, develop unified and coherent paragraphs as part of an organized essay, and write clear and effective sentences. WR 399 is equivalent to WR 201 and ESL 90 ; credit will be given in one only, not all. Successful completion allows students to enroll in WR 1 .
