ENG-2005 The Self-Sufficient Writer

3 credits
Prerequisite(s): Failure of the Writing Proficiency Exam
This course is intended to replace the Writing Proficiency Portfolio and is the means by which students who have failed the Writing Proficiency Exam may satisfy the last element of the General Education Curriculum in writing. As with the Writing Proficiency Exam, the emphasis of the course is the writing of extemporaneous persuasive essays in edited standard American English, without help from instructors or software-based spelling and grammar aids. Students will be expected to write in-class essays that state a clear thesis and develop that central idea concretely, logically and correctly. Class time is spent reviewing and cultivating the wide range of skills necessary to prepare students for the writing of analytic essays with a minimum of errors and without assistance from the instructor: review of and quizzes over the rules of grammar, punctuation, spelling and usage; editing passages and dictation exercises; peer teaching; and every week, in-class writing. General Education (EDP) Course Type: IHR (Individual & Human Relationships)
