WR-121 covers the processes and fundamentals of writing expository essays, including structure,
organization and development, diction and style, revision and editing, mechanics and standard
usage required for college-level writing. (PREREQUISITE: Placement by CPT or successful completion of WR115.)
In this class, you learn the basics of standard writing expected of a college student. Primarily, you will learn the skills necessary to be a successful student and a successful critical thinker (in college and beyond). My WR-121 emphasizes rhetorical awareness and critical thinking, observation and empathy, and seeking to satisfy your curiosity! My goal is always to design a course you will find enjoyable (while also learning something along the way).
Reminder that all information is subject to change when/if you take this class from me! But this will give you a taste of what to expect when taking WR-121 from me.
The Accelerated Learning Program (ALP) is an opportunity for qualified students to take WR-115 and WR-121 at the same time from the same instructor. This means earning six credits in one term from that same teacher, thus saving time and money.
However, ALP is not to be taken lightly; you are taking two classes from one instructor, which means two classes worth of work. If you are an ALP student, it is absolutely critical that you attend both classes each day and complete all the assignments and expectations.
The ideal ALP student is disciplined, eager to learn, hard-working, and dedicated. Check out the sample syllabus and course calendar below for more information.
