This course reviews basic strategies for forming good college-level sentences (including good thesis statements), paragraphs and essays. Students also learn to plan and edit their writing. Students will review rules of grammar, mechanics, vocabulary usage, and punctuation and apply them to short essays. The work will be tailored to individual needs: the course has a lab studio component to help practice skills, and students will work with the instructor as well as writing center peer consultants. This course does not fulfill the all-college general education requirement in writing (this requirement can be met by taking EN 121, 205, or 208) or count toward the English major or minor.
