ENGL 0040 - Integrated Reading and Writing


4 Credit(s)
This is a course designed to build critical thinking skills through reading and writing. It emphasizes that reading assists writing and writing assists reading in repetitive ways. Reading and writing are similar in that both are acts of composing. This is done through planning, drafting, aligning, revising, and monitoring. Close reading teaches students the focus and depth of analysis required by college-level reading. Attentive and close reading of sources as well as critical editing provide a focus on the language of the text. The course helps students to gain access to information and to use this information variously to lead articulate lives and to identify, think through, refine, and solve problems. Classroom instruction integrates writing and reading activities with an emphasis on essays, reading strategies, research, critical thinking, analysis, and metacognition. UG
