1 Welcome to English 1B! Writing is a collaborative effort, and one which does not happen in isolation. This class is structured around a workshop format where you will have the opportunity to receive and offer peer feedback on your writing. Effective writing will give you the tools to clearly communicate your ideas no matter what your field of study, interest, or expertise. The ability to express yourself through writing in an analytical and critical manner will give you a cutting edge in your academic career as well as the business world. The skills developed here are foundational. The journey through this course will be a difficult one fraught with challenges. I am here as your guide. I want you to complete this course successfully, and I will do everything I can to help you attain that goal, but you are required to do the work to get there. The beginning of the semester will be a steep uphill climb. We will cover a bulk of the distance in the beginning so that you have more freedom near the end to romp and play in the fields of revision. Along the way, you will be faced with many difficult topics that challenge your opinions and ways of thinking. In learning how to critically analyze these texts/arguments/topics, you must demonstrate the ability to comprehend texts at a more complex level. The best way to grow as a writer is to write.
