Welcome to ENG 1000c: Composition!

Over the next three months, you will be engaging in a great deal of writing and thinking. My hope is that by the end of this course you will feel more confident in your abilities as a writer and that you will begin to see writing as a social transaction rather than something teachers merely assign to students for evaluation purposes.

I would be lying to you if I told you that after this course, you will be a perfect writer or that you will automatically know how to address every writing situation. Becoming a writer is a lifelong process, and no one, not even the greatest authors, can say that they have reached a point where they have nothing left to learn or improve. That is not to say that a course in writing is a lost cause. You can, and hopefully will, learn a much about writing and thinking in this class. The Program Learning Objects designed by the First Year Writing Program (listed below) outline some of the things that I hope you will have learned by the end of this course.
