Writing 121

English Composition: WR 121 is designed to help you develop and strengthen your academic writing skills and prepare you for other writing you will do at Oregon State.  Our emphasis in WR 121 is on the process of writing which includes reading and research, critical thinking, prewriting, drafting, and multiple revisions.  Because the final product is important, much of our class time will be spent on this multi-step process.  Attendance and participation are vital and are required for success in this class. Instructor conferences and peer review as well as consultation with the Writing Center will guide your various drafts.  An Information Literacy Portfolio will boost skills in finding, evaluating, integrating, and using a wide variety of sources ethically and powerfully, especially with regard to changing technologies.
