<b>ENG W131 ELEMENTARY COMPOSITION<ul><li>2086     8:55a -
10:10a     BH 236     Daily</li></ul></b><p>W131 is a course in
academic writing that attempts to integrate critical reading,
thinking, and writing about phenomena and issues in our culture.
Rather than practicing a set of discrete skills or often unrelated
modes of discourse, the course aims to build sequentially on
students' ability to read both written and cultural texts closely
and critically and to analyze those texts in ways that also engage
and problematize studetns' own experience, the perspectives
of "experts" and the the world they live in.<p>W131 aims to show
students how the use of sources, agreement/disagreement, and
personal response can be made to serve independent, purposeful, and
well-supported analytical writing.<p>In summary, the course offers
instructions and practice in the reading, writing, and critical
thinking skills required in college. Emphasis is on written
assignments that require synthesis, analysis, and argument based on
sources.<p><b>**Enrollment into ENG W131 during Summer I requires
