In ENGLISH 101, students will become excellent academic writers. We will achieve this by reading examples of academic writing, noting their strengths and weaknesses. We will come to understand the forms of academic writing, some of which include literary analysis, personal narrative, and compare/contrast. More broadly, in ENGLISH 101 we will read and study non-fiction texts in order to better understand the world around us and the myriad ethical dilemmas that arise within our world. We will study those issues and dilemmas and be able to express our opinions on them in serious academic writing.
This course contains supplemental material for Mr. Krauss' English 10 course.
