Brief Description of Course: ENG100H is designed to help students from diverse disciplines develop their ability to think critically and write clearly. Various individual and collaborative exercises will familiarize students with the essential components of the academic essay, and help students with every stage of the writing process: prewriting, drafting, writing, and editing. Together, we will explore a variety of rhetorical tools and strategies for composing effective expository, analytical and persuasive prose at the university level. We will engage with and respond to a variety of material to improve critical inquiry and composition skills which will be essential in academic and non-academic contexts.
