Course Description: Writing 150 is a four-credit class focused on preparing you for the writing that
you will be doing throughout your college career. Through frequent practice in and out of the
classroom, you will learn to develop, focus, and organize your ideas and how to edit your writing.
Students must receive a grade of C or better to satisfy the first-year writing requirement. The class
will consist of both reading and writing assignments and exercises. Remember that this syllabus may
be modified somewhat to insure success.
By the end of WRT 150, (according to the “Green Book”), you should be able to:
Read and understand material written for college audiences
Demonstrate an understanding of written material through clearly focused written summaries
