In English 102, students will come to understand the spirit and methods of academicinquiry; they work from the perspective that knowledge is made through engaging with the ideas ofothers. Writers consider many perspectives on their subjects and speak to and sometimes againstthose ideas as they explore what they think. This kind of writing occurs through close interactionswith a wide range of sources, including academic and non-academic sources. While the courseemphasizes academic research, it also considers how inquiry informs all kinds of writing within theacademy and beyond.Students emerge from English 101 with more confidence as readers and writers, a deeperunderstanding of the range of options they have as writers, and a clearer sense of the challengesand possibilities of writing in the academy and beyond. In English 102, students will build on thoseunderstandings and extend them.The outcomes for English 101 and 102 have been developed locally through discussion andcollaboration among instructors in the First-Year Writing Program. They are directly informed by theannual program-wide student writing assessment, and they have been written within the frameworkof nationally accepted outcomes for first-year composition. The yearly assessment reports areavailable at the First-Year Writing Program website; the Council of Writing Program AdministratorsOutcomes for First-Year Writing() are available attheir site.What You Should Know about This CourseRhetorical KnowledgeStudents in English 102 will engage with research-based writing as an active, rhetorical process.
