WRIT 10100 - Writing & Research I: Argumentation

Key sequenced assignments include: paraphrase and summary that accurately state the ideas of others; citation that demonstrates ethical use of the ideas of others; written argumentation that responds logically to the ideas of others; and presentation that demonstrates foundational fluidity in syntax and mechanics.  The enduring value of Writing & Research I is that it introduces students to the rewards of a lifelong commitment to improving thinking in writing.   For associate-level degrees, satisfies EC Written Communications for Foundational Studies.
