1 English Composition 101 Syllabus: Spring 2010 Dr. Morache Office Phone : 732-6802 Office : 112 Shields Office Hours : MW 11-12; T 2-3; F 11-1 Or by appointment E-Mail: jmorache@csi.edu Welcome to English 101! Writing is the essential means for deepening and clarifying our thinking—for expressing our ideas personally, professionally, and artistically. Through reading what others have written and struggling to put our own thoughts on paper, we learn in profound ways. Writing well allows us to participate significantly in the discussions that define our lives. Catalog Description: English 101 emphasizes the process and strategies of writing with critical attention to purpose, audience, and style. Students write analytical essays based on reading, observations, and ideas: develop their inventiveness and voice; and edit for style conventions of standard usage. This course requires students to produce a documented essay. Students will also produce a portfolio of collected works. Placement in 101 is based on a proficiency test and a departmental writing sample. Prerequisite: You must have completed English 090 successfully, or you must have achieved the appropriate placement exam score (COMPASS >69 or ACT >17 to enroll in English 101. In addition, you will write a Writing Sample Placement Essay on the first day of class. Based on this sample, the professor may recommend a different course for you. Required Texts and Materials : Interactions: A Thematic Reader, 6 th edition, Special Edition for College of Southern Idaho editors Ann Mosley and Jeanette Harris (note that this book has a yellowish cover —be careful not to purchase the 7 th edition with the dark blue cover) A Pocket Style Manual 5 th edition with 2009 MLA update editor Diana Hacker A light-weight, two pocket folder to be used exclusively for handing in each Final Draft of your essays with the required First Draft and process work. Another folder for saving all of your essay drafts throughout the entire semester (First Drafts, Final Drafts, Returned Graded Drafts): This is an English Department requirement for Outcomes Assessment. I recommend a three-ring binder with pockets for keeping your handouts, notes, and work-in-progress organized. (I also recommend a small stapler and a hole punch for organizing your handouts in your 3-ring binder.) Basic Course Requirements: Complete Placement Writing Sample Essay Come to class prepared and participate in discussions of readings, class activities, and peer/self review of essays. Write and submit ORIGINAL (not plagiarized or reworked) first and final drafts of essays on time throughout the semester Word process all drafts of essays, with the exception of the Placement Essay. You must write at least two drafts of all four assignment essays in order to pass the course and to be eligible to write the Outcomes Assessment Essay.
