Through a genre approach to writing instruction similar to ENG 101, ENG 095 students will analyze a variety of non-fiction texts in multiple genres and prepare writing projects according to rhetorical situations. Students will write with attention to purpose and audience,appropriate and varied organization, development using detailed evidence,and language, including grammar and sentence structure.

Reading a variety of full-length texts, students become familiar with the demands of critical reading and practice interpretive strategies that will be required in further academic study. Students will receive embedded support during writing studio hours.
