English 098

Foundations of Reading and Writing

English 098, a non-credit accelerated course, focuses on easily-digestible, high-traffic concepts that help students to improve their reading and writing. This does not mean, however, that the pedagogy of the course grows out of the assumption that students of basic writing are taught to master a “simpler version of a universal writing process” that calls for a “mechanical” response to simple prompting (Bartholomae). Students in English 098 dive immediately into the writing process and into relevant and challenging texts as they would in any writing class; English 098 students, however, receive more support as they embark on the process of composing college-level work.
