RPW 110 - Rhetoric and Writing I


3 credit(s)
Introduces students to the complex practices of writing, reading, and thinking required in many university courses. Students learn to approach writing as a process of invention, drafting, revising, and editing. The course also emphasizes the rhetorical aspects of writing, such as audience, arrangement, and academic conventions. Students learn to read diverse texts critically by practicing close-reading strategies, such as highlighting, annotating, and double-entry note taking. Students should become more confident and competent at understanding the positions of others as well as asserting their own informed perspectives. Designated sections of the course require additional work on basic skills. This course may not be elected on a Pass/No Pass basis.
