GENG 1096 - Principles of College Writing

6 Credit Hours
This 16-week course will be broken down into two stages. The first stage (weeks 1-8) will emphasize grammar, i.e. the parts of speech and the interrelation of these parts, with particular focus on the verb system (tense, aspect, voice, and mood), as well as review and explication of frequent error domains. In addition, students will be familiarized with expectations of writing for an academic audience and will be instructed in close reading and sentence building. Stage two of the course (weeks 9-16) will continue to emphasize on close reading but will expand to students’ practice of writing thoughtfully to prompts and modeling critical thinking within the act of writing. While grammar will still be addressed in the second part of the term, matters of sentence structure, paragraph creation, and higher ordered organization will take precedence. Lastly, the conventions of APA style will be addressed throughout the semester.
