ENGL 1101 - Written English I


Credit Hours: 3-4
This course offers process-oriented practice in drafting, revising, and editing texts. Students learn the principles of expository writing, thesis formulation, organization, paragraph development, audience analysis, appropriate diction, and sentence structure. The course also includes an introduction to reading for content in texts selected from across the disciplines. Following WV state mandates, students scoring below 18 on the English section of the ACT, 450 in Critical Reading on the SAT-1, or 5 on the WritePlacer of ACCUPLACER, or the equivalent will be required to take an additional credit hour of supplemental instruction in English 1101, which will reinforce the skills necessary to generate college level essays. A “C” in English 1101 is a graduation requirement for all degrees. Course is transferable as general studies credit to all other state institutions of higher education in West Virginia for credit with the grade earned.
