1 UWP 1 – EXPOSITORY WRITING FINAL EXAM DATE: FINAL EXAM: THU. DEC.08 AT 3:30PM FALL 2016 SECTION 20 MW 8:00-9:50 290 HICKEY GYM INSTRUCTOR: Jennifer Colmenero OFFICE: Voorhies 324 EMAIL: [email protected] OFFICE HOURS: Mondays 11-12 & Thursdays 1-2. 15 minutes. COURSE DESCRIPTION Welcome to UWP 1: Expository Writing! This course is designed to prepare you for the kinds of reading/writing tasks you will experience in your college courses, especially at the lower-division level (i.e., breadth requirements and prerequisite courses). To do this, we will discuss and practice different types of writing. The course is designed to help you understand and improve your own writing process so that writing is a useful tool for you, now and in the future. The goal is to provide you with transferable strategies to assist you in your university education and future career. You will write formal papers both in class and out of class on a range of different tasks and topics. In most cases, you will have some choice about how to shape the content. There will also be informal writing tasks, such as homework assignments in which you respond to readings or reflect upon a writing assignment, and in-class writing activities. In short, you will be writing and revising a lot. (UWP policy requires 6000 words of original work for each course.) Depending upon the week, you should plan for 6- 12 hours of outside work per week (homework, reading, writing papers). READ THIS NOW. The prerequisite for UWP 1 is completion of the Entry Level Writing Requirement (ELWR). If you take UWP 1 without having met the ELWR, you will receive credit for the course, but you will not fulfill your lower-division writing requirement. You must earn a final grade of C- or higher to fulfill the lower-division writing requirement, even if you have completed all of the work. If you receive a D-range grade, you will still receive credit for the course, but you will not fulfill your lower-division writing requirement.

    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.
