WRT 100 Introduction to College Writing


Introduction to College Writing prepares students to write successfully at York College by giving you varied experience in critical reading and writing. In this course, you will develop flexible strategies of communication that will help you throughout college and in your professional life. You will be asked to read carefully, so that you will not only summarize, but also synthesize, analyze, and critique complex texts. This class will take a rhetorical approach, always addressing the available means writers and speakers employ to create effective discourse. You will write several short papers that demonstrate critical thinking and help you experiment with a variety of arguments and styles. You will also gain experience at turning your written work into oral and multimedia presentations.
