Course Description

English Composition: Research
This is the third course in a three-term sequence of college composition for students pursuing the Associate of Arts Transfer who began the writing sequence with WR121 prior to summer 2010. While continuing the goals of WR121 and WR122, this course emphasizes skills needed to write the research essay. Students learn to formulate a research subject and to find, evaluate and interpret information on that subject. They learn to distinguish between opinion and fact, to assert a thesis and to present their findings and conclusions in a well-organized, carefully documented research paper. One long paper (2000-3000 words) and a shorter research essay are required. Offered at irregular intervals.
