ENGL 110 - Composition I: Close Reading And Analysis

Credit(s): 3
This course focuses on close reading as a tool for critical analysis and as a means to achieve a foundation for various modes of writing. The course will explore interdisciplinary materials that connect students to larger academic and social communities and investigate the relationship between writers, purposes, and audience. Emphasis is placed on the preliminary writing process, including close reading, critical analysis, annotating, pre-writing, drafting, and revising.

  • Students scoring less than 20 on the ACT English sub-score or 470 on the SAT Verbal will be required to take Accuplacer. Students making at least an ACT 20 English sub-score (or the SAT equivalent) will automatically be placed in English 110 without a lab requirement.
  • Students who wish to take Accuplacer to determine their English placement may do so; students with no national test scores must take Accuplacer.
  • Students who score below a “4” on WritePlacer will be required to take English 110 with a lab component.
  • Any student who does not take Accuplacer (except for those bringing in high standardized test scores) will automatically be placed into English 110 with a lab.
