About English 110B

English 110A meets Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, 11-11:50, room E135 Olin


English 110 – also known as Language and Writing – provides an entry into college-level writing and academic discourse.   The course encourages students to examine writing closely, to figure out what makes a piece of writing effective (or not) and how different aspects of writing work together (or don’t). We’ll address conventions, rules, and preferences that masquerade as rules.  By making choices about an array of interrelated tools, students can devise a writing style that is both effective in an academic setting and comfortably individual.
