ENG 110 EXPOSITORY WRITING 3 credits, 3 hours
Prerequisite: Passing CUNY/ACT Reading and Writing tests, or Exemption
English 110, a foundational writing course, is designed to strengthen students' composing skills so that they will produce increasingly complex and better-structured essays. Reading and responding to interdisciplinary texts representing various rhetorical modes, students will practice paraphrasing and summarizing these texts, enrich their vocabulary, and improve their writing, revision, and proofreading skills. Additionally, students will be introduced to the use of print and on-line secondary sources. Upon completion of the course, students will be able to respond critically, in writing, to a variety of texts, integrating their own ideas with those presented in the readings.
ENG 111 LITERATURE AND COMPOSITION 3 credits, 3 hours
Prerequisite: ENG 110 or Department permission
English 111, the second semester of freshman composition and a foundational writing course, introduces students to techniques for close reading of literary texts. This course develops students' critical thinking skills through the study of literary elements such as plot, character, setting, point of view, symbolism, and irony. Additionally, students will learn the Modern Language Association (MLA) system of parenthetical citation and how to incorporate quotations into their analysis of literary texts; they will also complete a research paper by consulting both print and on-line sources. By the end of the semester, students will be able to interpret and write critically about each of the three major genres: poetry, fiction, and drama.
ENG 202 TECHNICAL WRITING 3 credits, 3 hours
Prerequisite: ENG 111
In this course, students will perform tasks related to the technical writing process in order to write effectively on the job In addition to learning to generate written documents for the technical and business professions, this course will focus on skills such as defining purpose, understanding readers, understanding client, constructing effective sentences and paragraphs, composing drafts, testing drafts and revising the quality of finished documents. At the completion of the course, students will be able to create communications that will succeed in the workplace.
