Course Description

XENGL-103, Advanced College Writing, provides students with an opportunity to develop evaluative, interpretative, and analytical skills necessary for college-level work. Students will focus on critically reading and responding to literary texts from three of the following genres: fiction, poetry, drama, and/or non-fiction prose. Emphasis will be placed on the research process, culminating in at least one researched literary interpretation. Throughout the course, students will compile Part 1 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, which will include individual conferences with the teacher, electronic exercises in grammar and punctuation, and at least one department-wide seminar in writing style. To satisfy the Literature and Composition general education requirement, ENGL 103 students must take a 200-level literature course. Prerequisite: Open only to Hill Scholars.
