Introductory Writing (Credit: 3 hours)
Introductory Writing students practice and acquire the fundamental writing principles: parts of speech;
sentence structure and sentence types, from simple to compound-complex; and punctuation. The
course project consists of four assigned essays, each being submitted incrementally; thus, students
receive individual feedback from instructors throughout the course. Additionally, the collateral writing
assignment teaches vital research skills; it requires students to develop a research question and thesis
statement. Next they gather notes from scholarly sources, organize their body of research, and write
an accurately documented report.
Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:
Differentiate and use basic sentence elements and parts of speech.
Use correct subject-verb agreement.
Use correct pronoun case and agreement.
Avoid shifts in tenses and person.
