ENG 111 - College Writing II
Students produce sophisticated analyses and evaluations of texts and write essays that expand and refine their thinking about important ideas and issues. They analyze and evaluate ideas and information from a variety of sources, including electronic databases and networks, providing appropriate documentation. Students extend their writing maturity by learning to choose an appropriate rhetorical stance for different ideas, purposes, and audiences, and to assert an original thesis as a product of synthesizing ideas from multiple perspectives.
