English 100 (called English 191 for fall 2019 only)
English 100 helps students practice the basics of college level reading, summary, and argumentative writing. Students will learn how to organize ideas, analyze evidence, and revise their sentences and paragraphs. They will also learn grammar and proofreading skills. English 100 will not transfer to universities and does not fulfill program or general education requirements.

English 101+
English 101+ prepares students for writing in the university. Students practice critical thinking, reading, and writing. They will develop skills in argumentation, source integration, analysis of evidence, research methods, generating original ideas, and revision strategies according to audience expectations. Students will meet in the computer lab to receive additional support from the instructor and time to work on their assignments. English 101+ is transferable and will fulfill program and general education requirements.
