Shared English 110 Experience

According to our objectives statement for English 110/College Writing, our course will give students experience “writing to persuade by analyzing, interpreting, researching, synthesizing, and evaluating a wide variety of sources” [emphasis added].

This expectation was extended in the “Library & General Research Skills students should develop in English 110” handout (included in your packet and available on Blackboard). While we can partner with Belk librarians to teach many of these skills, this instruction is most meaningful when completed within the context of a writing assignment. Furthermore, teaching these research skills in College Writing courses gives us another angle from which to discuss evaluating texts, using source material, and avoiding plagiarism.
