ENG 110: College Writing Section G Fall 2007 ENG 110: College Writing MW  1:40-3:20 Alamance 201 Instructor:  Paula Patch Office:  Alamance 309-D E-mail [email protected] Telephone   278-6062  Office Hours:   M and W 3:30-4:30; Tues  10:30-1:30; also, by e-mail and by appointment ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- “They’re going to kill each other,” somebody yelled from an  upstairs window. Nobody disagreed and nobody moved to  change the situation. Witnesses. They were all witnesses  and nothing more.” (Alexie,   Sherman.   “Every   Little   Hurricane.”   The   Lone  Ranger   and   Tonto   Fistfight   in   Heaven.   New   York:  HarperPerennial, 1994. 1-11.) This section of ENG 110: College Writing will focus on the act of  witnessing  and the  important role writing plays in this act. In some cases, “to witness” means to watch, to  observe, to see, to perceive—an action that can be both passive and active. In other  cases, “to witness” means to tell, to report, to share the word or truth of a situation. In all  cases, “to witness” means to possess a certain power, one that derives from  understanding what you observe (read, think, or discover through research) and being  able to share the truth about your observation (speak and write). This is the power of  college writing. Required texts Callaghan, Patsy and Ann Dobyns.  A Meeting of Minds: Strategies for Academic Inquiry  and Writing . 2 nd  ed. New York: Pearson Longman, 2006.

English 110 objectives All sections of College Writing aim to develop the following: 1. A more sophisticated writing process—including invention, peer responding,  revising, and editing—that results in a clear, effective, well-edited public piece. 2. A more sophisticated understanding of the relationship of purpose, audience, and  voice, and an awareness that writing expectations and conventions vary within the  academy and in professional and public discourse. 3. An appreciation for the capacity of writing to change oneself and the world.
