ENG-101 - Rhetoric I

Students develop the composition and interpretation skills they need to communicate, think and learn effectively in and beyond college. They use writing to explore the link between experience and language. They write to discover insights and to develop, question and revise their thoughts while seeking to communicate them effectively. Students read various genres of writing to practice interacting with other writers and to learn the variety of strategies writers employ to achieve their ends. To pass with a "C" or better, students must produce a portfolio that passes evaluation by English faculty at semester's end. Lecture three hours per week. Note: All entering freshmen (first-time college enrollees) must earn at least a "C" in each of ENG 101 and ENG 102 for satisfactory completion of the IAI General Education Package and for graduation from the College in all university transfer degrees (A.A., A.S., and A.F.A.). This is a regulation of the IAI Steering Panel and endorsed by the Illinois Community College Board
