The syllabus calls for students to complete two portfolios of finished work along
with informal writing done during the semester. To complete the portfolios,
students will practice narrative writing, summary, personal response, library research,
source evaluation, and responding to sources. From their informal writing, students will
choose those pieces they want to revise and prepare for submission as finished pieces
in the portfolio. The weekly outline for CO130 notes clearly the progression of topics
and the sequence of writing tasks that students will complete during the term.
