L59 CWP 100 College Writing 1

This course teaches writing as a way of thinking and learning. Throughout the semester, students explore writing as a creative and intellectual process. They learn how to brainstorm, explore and structure ideas on a page; share their writing and learn how to give and take constructive criticism; and learn how to revise their work, both for issues related to the paper's larger idea and for issues related to grammar and style. By regularly working their way through the writing process, students develop the habits and skills that make advanced study possible: paying close attention to the words and ideas of others; forming and responding to arguments of others; and refining a lucid style of prose that meets the expectations of the audience and occasion. This course is taught in small sections of 12 students or fewer.

Credit 3 units.
