Effective Writing
Instructor: Dr. D. Flynn

Office Location: Jackman Humanities Building, Room 929

Brief Description of Course:
ENG100H is designed to help students from diverse disciplines develop their ability to read critically, think analytically, and write clearly. First and foremost, the course will teach you how to write the kind of clear, well-reasoned prose that is expected at the University of Toronto. In order to meet this objective, you will engage actively in each stage of the writing process three times during the term, with extensive prewriting exercises, drafting work, and post-writing revisions. In so doing, you will improve your ability to write everything from emails and notes to exams and research papers, thus developing writing skills that will be essential in university and beyond.

Required Reading: The McGraw-Hill Handbook. Flynn, Maimon, Peritz, and Yancey. 2010. The textbook will be available at The Bob Miller Book Room in August. This store is located at 180 Bloor Street West, Lower Concourse, just across from the ROM. To get an idea of the book's table of contents and first chapter (which will also give you an idea of the way I will coach you through the writing process), go to:
First Three Authors/Texts: TBA.

Method of Evaluation: TBA.
