Course Description

XENGL-102, College Writing 2, provides students with an opportunity to develop evaluative, interpretative, and analytical skills necessary for college-level work.

Emphasis will be placed on the research process, culminating in at least one researched literary interpretation. Throughout the course, students will compile Part 2 of their Carroll Community Writing Portfolios, which will be evaluated as the final examination to determine whether or not statewide standards for a "C" paper have been met. In addition, students will spend an additional hour per week engaged in Expression Workshop activities. Expression Workshop activities may include individual or group conferences with the teacher, electronic exercises in grammar and punctuation, and department-wide seminars in writing style.
