ELAN 101B Introduction to College Writing, Part 2

The stretch composition courses are designed to fulfill the English 101 requirement in a modified, two-semester model. ELAN 101B is the second semester of the stretch model and is specifically designed for non-native English speakers. This course adds intensive work in grammar, punctuation, building confidence and skill as a writer, and the expectations of American academic writing. Students in ELAN 101B will work individually and in groups to observe and produce writing for both academic and workplace settings. The course explores the writing and revision process and reviews grammar, editing, and proofreading as applied in students’ writing. Writing will grow from different purposes as students compose for varied audiences, formats, and media; this includes business documents, research-based academic and general writing, reflections, and presentations. Critical thinking and information literacy are included in this course. Students who succeed in this course will produce professional-quality writing that is clear, concise, evidence-driven and persuasive. Successful completion of ELAN 101B completes the English 101 requirement. Students are encouraged to enroll in the same section number as 101A; for example, if they took ELAN 101A-01, they would enroll in ELAN 101B-01. Students are encouraged to complete 101B by the end of their first academic year.
