Recommended Resources : The Writing Center, located on the ground floor of Carroll Science, G-09 Course Description : This course is designed to teach students two things: 1) By reading and discussing that reading in our class, students will learn thinking skills necessary for good writing. 2) Students will learn to use research tools in order to collect research on a topic of their choosing. They will then learn to incorporate that research into their own argument. Our course will be roughly divided in half: during the first half we will focus on reading, writing, and research skills. In the second half, we will focus on applying those skills to a polished research paper. Course Objectives : According to Baylor’s “Guide for Freshman Composition,” the objectives for this class are as follows: “While continuing to build on the knowledge and skills developed in English 1302, English 1304 focuses on the relationship between critical reading and writing in an academic context. Students will learn to read sources carefully and critically and to evaluate information and arguments; to represent their reading accurately and fairly through summary, paraphrase, and quotation; and to use sources appropriately in their own writing.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
