In this course, students consider writing as a major tool for discovering what they think, examining these thoughts, communicating them effectively and generating ideas as they take in new information. This course will generally use peer-group techniques to help develop a sense of audience and purpose. Each section of ENGL 102 will have a primary focus or subject matter determined in advance by the instructor, and students will be introduced to various strategies for refining their thinking by taking their writing through the drafting, crafting, editing and polishing processes. ENGL 102, CORE 101, or NITZ 180 are prerequisites or co-requisites to all subsequent English courses.
