|WR 121_H - Academic Composition-Honors
This fundamental course for all writing students introduces students to the conventions of academic writing. It emphasizes defining and developing a significant topic and using principles of clear thinking to support an assertive or argumentative thesis. Students will gain an understanding of their subject matter, audience, purpose, and point-of-view, and demonstrate that understanding through the organization and development of their essays. Students will learn how to analyze and evaluate other writers' work to sharpen their critical abilities as readers and writers. The course also introduces students to skills in source analysis, documentation, and beginning research methods. This honors class delves deeper into course topics and requires a high level of student motivation; the pace may be faster than non-honors courses. See www.lanecc.edu/honors for information.
