    CIS Composition - 2 trimesters (4 college credits through UMN; WRIT 1301)

    This course involves critical reading, writing, and thinking as students practice the types of academic writing they may expect in their college career, such as summaries, essays, academic arguments, bibliographies, and research papers. The course is designed to help students develop a clear thesis in a written paper and support that thesis with appropriate sources, evidence, and documentation. Time is spent discussing rhetorical elements of writing such as audience, purpose, and argumentative structure. In addition, students practice steps in the writing process such as invention, research, organization, drafting, revision, and editing. Students report, synthesize, and draw conclusions regarding the significance of what they read. Prerequisite: Must be a Junior or Senior with instructor recommendation.
