Writing 1: ESL is an introduction to college-level writing, reading and discussion specifically designed for students whose native language is not English. Initial writing assignments will involve students with language as a personally expressive, creative, and imaginative medium. Later assignments will bring this expressiveness to bear on practical writing tasks typical of college-level work: research, analysis, argument, etc. Reading is designed to stimulate discussion and present models for students' own writing. Although writing and reading are the main emphases, attention will also be given to informal discussion and oral presentation.
