Students will receive instruction in writing skills such as structuring an argument, using evidence from multiple sources, using conventions appropriately, and refining an essay through revision. This class is equivalent to Eng 1020 at Wesleyan, Eng 180 or an Ace #5 at UNL, and Eng 2100 at SCC.
Students are able to earn 3 hours of dual credit through NWU.
**Students must purchase books and materials for this course.
