Learning Goals and Outcomes

109:

In order to strengthen the connections between 109/110 and other 100-level EWP courses, we have adopted the 131 outcomes and applied them to the 109/110 sequence. One of the challenges of this adaptation is that, in a two-quarter sequence, many of these outcomes are developed over two quarters. 

One way to think about working towards these outcomes in 109 is through the following set of learning goals:

·         To be able to read and annotate academic articles
·         To gain familiarity with traditional academic grammar and style conventions
·         To be able to write in various academic genres (for example: summaries, précis/abstracts, response papers, rhetorical analyses)
·         To acquire a vocabulary for discussing writing (for example: claim, organization, introduction, conclusion, transition, rhetorical conventions/situations)
·         To begin formulating and developing a complex claim
·         To write several short pieces and one longer (4-6 pages) analytical argument essay that goes through a draft-revision process and incorporates earlier writing assignments

110:

By the end of 110, students should be able to demonstrate proficiency in all of the EWP course outcomes.

 

Like other EWP courses, 109/110 are both portfolio-based. While the 109 portfolio should showcase 109 Learning Goals, the 110 Portfolio works towards the EWP outcomes.
