English 148 - Introduction to Composition

English 148 is an introductory, three-credit writing course designed to help students who might have difficulty succeeding in ENGL 150. The course is appropriate for both native speakers and those for whom English is a second language.  Writing and reading are emphasized, including reading with greater insight and acquiring greater ease in writing, organizing, focusing, and developing ideas. Classes are small and a great deal of individual tutorial work is provided along with formal instruction. Each term ENGL 148 consists of an undergraduate and non-undergraduate section, and there is a limited enrollment of 12 in each section.


English 180 - Writing Tutorial

English 180 is a one or two-credit writing tutorial class designed to develop students' expository writing skills through weekly scheduled conferences with a Writing Resource Center Instructor. Goals are to produce clear, well-organized, and mechanically acceptable prose, and to demonstrate learned writing skills throughout the term. Course content is highly individualized based on both the instructor's initial assessment of the student's writing and the student's particular concerns. All students must produce a minimum of 12 pages of finished writing for each credit for which they are enrolled, and complete other assignments as designed by the instructor to assist in meeting course goals.


ENROLLMENT: Course times are based on both the student's schedule and instructor availability. After enrolling, students are responsible for contacting the Writing Resource Center to begin the scheduling process. Students may e-mail, or call the Director, Dr. Megan Swihart Jewell, at 216-368-3799.
