ENGL110XM - College Composition I with Corequisite (4-2-5)

As the cornerstone of College Composition I, students will conduct intensive semester-long research on a topic culminating in an appropriately formatted and documented 10-12 page persuasive research paper. The course emphasizes writing as a process that undergoes various stages toward completion and engages a variety of rhetorical approaches. This process-writing method gives students the tools that underlie effective academic writing and ensures adherence to the conventions of standard written English. College Composition I - Corequisite is designed for students who need practice in foundational skills while simultaneously engaging college-level reading, writing, and research skills. Weekly lab sessions will reinforce skills and topics directly related to the lecture and assignments. Prerequisites: English placement (please contact the Advising Center at (603) 206-8140 or for details).

Students can elect to take the English Language Learners section of ENGL110M or ENGL110XM. This section approaches reading and writing from the perspective of students whose first language is not English.
