FYWT 111  First-Year Writing I

Division of Liberal Arts

3 credits 45.0 hours
100 level undergraduate course

FYWT 111 is the first part of a year-long writing, reading and research course that teaches the fundamental aspects of the responsible student-scholar. The emphasis is on the reading and writing processes that lead to argumentation, as well as on the technical aspects of writing, specifically essay structure, paragraph construction, grammar, punctuation and spelling. Students practice critical reading and writing skills to develop academic essays: describing, summarizing, analyzing, applying and synthesizing. They are introduced to the library’s holdings and taught to access and assess source material. By the end of this course, successful students will: 1. Demonstrate the critical reading and writing skills needed to construct academic essays describing, summarizing, analyzing, applying, and synthesizing. 2. Compose a question-based research paper (about four pages in length) and support a thesis in the body of the essay in properly structured paragraphs. *Apply source material avoiding intentional or intentional plagiarism through direct quotation and paraphrase and cite in MLA format (in-text citations and bibliography). *Synthesize source material to support a deductive argument. 3. Assess scholarly sources (locate the authors thesis, evaluate evidence, and weigh credibility). 4. Access source material through the library holdings: reference section, on-line databases, stacks, and in-library periodicals. 5. Recognize and edit patterns of grammatical error (sentence fragments, run-on sentences, subject-verb agreement, verb tense, punctuation, and spelling) to write clear sentences. Enrollment is based on performance on the English Placement Exam and SAT/ACT scores. Successful completion of FYWT 008 or FYWT 009 may be required as a result of the English Placement Exam.

Completion of FYWT*008 if required by English placement exam. Completion of FYWT*009 if required by English placement exam. Requires enrollment in an undergraduate degree program.
