COM 122 - English Composition I (Honors)


3 Credit Hours

This course helps students develop an understanding of the elements of exposition and formal argument and the processes and strategies involved in writing essays for various audiences. Students also learn to identify and locate credible sources, integrate researched information within essays, and use Modern Language Association (MLA) and American Psychological Association (APA) documentation. *This Honors section of English Composition assumes a strong foundation in writing skills, including developing and organizing a focused piece of writing and using current conventions of academic discourse. Therefore, the major emphasis will be an in-depth exploration of a socially relevant theme chosen by instructor and/or students using those skills and producing a collaborative, unified body of work rather than isolated individual essays. In a workshop format, the class will work as a community of writers to define and to solve a writing problem. Discussions, readings, interviews, primary research, and extensive writing will result in a culminating final product and presentation that would incorporate the work of the entire semester.
