EN 104 Writing for the Academic Conversation

This is a five-week course designed to introduce Gateway and ACT101 students to the fundamentals of writing at the university level. This course is designed to help students understand and embody the basic habits of a scholarly life of inquiry and to help students contribute to the academic conversation. Students write two formal papers, maintain a journal, read and discuss assigned readings, peer review each other’s writing, and represent their growth as readers, writers and thinkers in an end-of-session portfolio. Students also are required to meet with the professor twice for one-on-one conferences on their papers and to participate in twice-weekly, one-hour writing sessions in a computer lab facilitated by two graduate-level writing consultants.

Prerequisite: Acceptance into the summer Gateway program.
