WR115 :  Introduction to College Writing

This course introduces students to college-level writing that is informed by critical thinking and the ideas of others as found in texts. The primary focus is on writing short analytical, expository essays based on readings, outside materials and, to a lesser extent, personal experience. Summary writing, organization, development, sentence style, grammar and beginning documentation also are stressed. Information literacy is introduced. WR115 is a preparatory course for students who need to improve their writing skills before they begin the standard transfer college composition sequence.
Prerequisite: RD090 and WR090; or IECC201R and IECC201W; each with a grade of "C" or better, or placement above stated course levels; or instructor consent.
Credit Hours: 4
