ENGLISH 310 section 4          SPRING 2010     COURSE DESCRIPTION AND REQUIREMENTS English 310, Section: 4  Instructor:   Wendy Levison Office:  HUM 227 Office hours: MWF 1:10-2:00 and BA  (Telephone:  338-7459)   Email:   [email protected] Mailbox:   HUM 125 (please leave papers in my mailbox not  under my office door) COURSE DESCRIPTION English 310 is a composition course focusing on academic writing. You will learn how to use and  integrate ideas from readings in your writing and how to write a documented academic essay with  citations and a bibliography. You will conduct research. You will learn how to critically evaluate  and interact with readings in order to generate  ideas for your own essays. You will keep a  reading/writing notebook in which you will respond to the readings in preparation for the essay  assignments. Homework will include answering study questions designed to help you understand  the readings. Each unit covered requires a process of drafts and conferences which result in a  finished essay.  Although some grammar points will be covered, the primary focus of this course is on critical  reading, synthesizing ideas, integrating ideas from outside sources in essays, and the general  building of composition skills. You will be expected to write effectively at the sentence level. That  is, you must employ a variety of grammatical structures which help you to express your ideas  clearly and you must proofread so that your final essays are free of serious and distracting grammar  errors. Throughout the semester, you will work towards meeting the learning objectives for Written  Communication   (General   Education   Segment   I   Policy)   outlined   at   the   end   of   this   course  description. Library requirement   Since you will conduct research throughout the semester, you should have completed the online  library requirement by the end of February.
