    COURSE INFORMATION
   
ENC 1101 Freshman Composition I
ENC 1102 Freshman Composition II
     
   
   

In my courses, students write essays in which they discover, refine, and support their ideas (interpretations of the texts in ENC 1102).  All papers, including peer reviews, show evidence of the three complete stages of prewriting, writing, and revising.  All drafts are used to determine the grade.  Papers are revised and kept in file folders.  Some evaluations consist of marginal and end comments with a letter grade on the final draft.  Other evaluations consist of holistic scores and checklists with explanations of the score.
Students actively participate in group discussions of papers during each stage of the writing process.  Students are prepared for each discussion with appropriate copies of drafts and completed feedback forms/memos and notations on student papers.  If writing groups are unable to finish discussions during class, students make arrangements to complete their work outside of class.
