University of Georgia, English 1101: “Introduction to College Writing” (Fall 2006, Fall 2007, Summer 2013)

Students read non-fiction essays and articles and learn the foundational aspects of exposition and argumentative writing.  Students practice writing intelligent and challenging thesis statements, and experience the collaborative and social aspects of the writing process through group peer reviews and writing workshops.  Responding to the critical inquiries of the readings, students write three papers and, at the end of the course, produce a final writing portfolio that demonstrates their drafting, editing, and peer review skills.
