English 100 can help you make more informed decisions about the writing you do. As an introduction to college composition and one way to fulfill the Communications A requirement, the course will help you see writing as a situated practice that takes into account the rhetorical situation to inform why you write, what you write, and how you write.

- Who are your audiences and what are your purposes for writing?
- How do you use different genres or discourse conventions to make your writing effective?
