WR 121 - English Comp-Expo
The three courses comprise the basic college transfer writing program at UCC, corresponding to the composition programs at all Oregon State System of Higher Education schools. WR 121 improves writing, reading, and critical thinking skills, preparing students to succeed in future college classes, careers, and personal lives. In a collaborative environment, students write a variety of essays focusing on various aspects of argumentation, including summarizing arguments, examining controversial issues, analyzing effective arguments, and writing an argumentative essay that incorporates sources using the MLA documentation system. Students will learn to approach argumentation as a method of inquiry and will learn about the function of discourse communities, questions at issue, enthymemes, counter enthymemes, reasoning and assumptions. Students will select and restrict topics, formulate claims, develop an academic voice and style, appeal to a particular audience, and thoughtfullyevaluate and productively revise their work. Sentence variety, paragraph development, appropriate diction, and conventions of grammar and punctuation will be addressed; however, WR 121 is not a grammar course. The quality of ideas in students' writing, including effective reasoning and presentation of subject matter, is the primary focus of the course.
