WR 121_H - Academic Composition

4 Credit(s)

This honors class delves deeper into course topics and requires a high level of student motivation; the pace may be faster than non-honors courses. See lanecc.edu/honors for information. This fundamental course for all writing students introduces students to the conventions of academic writing. It emphasizes defining and developing a significant topic and using principles of clear thinking to support an assertive or argumentative thesis. Students will gain an understanding of their subject matter, audience, purpose, and point-of-view, and demonstrate that understanding through the organization and development of their essays. Students will learn how to analyze and evaluate other writers’ work to sharpen their critical abilities as readers and writers. The course also introduces students to skills in source analysis, documentation, and beginning research methods. May be offered online. This course also meets Lane Degree requirements that are fulfilled by the same course number without the H.

Prerequisite: Appropriate scores on Lane’s Writing Placement Test or a passing grade (C- or better) in WR 115 .
