In CO130, students will practice processes appropriate for college reading and writing, by identifying rhetorical contexts (audiences and purposes) in a number of texts and exploring various strategies (writing from personal experience, summarizing, arguing from sources) appropriate to those contexts. By writing and revising several essays, students refine their prewriting, drafting, and revising strategies to produce focused and detailed papers. Classroom activities will focus on two principles--daily writing practice and collaborative work--to emphasize the concepts of writing as a process and of academic writing as a collaborative endeavor that requires actively engaging the texts of others.
