ENG 100E

ENG 100E/101: Composition I-Expanded


Instructors teaching Composition I-Expanded must include three primary writing assignments in the fall semester and three primary writing assignments in the spring semester. These assignments are to be similar in nature to genres assigned in Composition I. Instructors teaching Comp-I Expanded will receive a packet including information specific to teaching this class. All Comp I-Expanded courses must conclude each semester with a portfolio requirement. The first-semester portfolio must include a reflection essay and one sample of revised student writing, and the second-semester portfolio must include a reflection essay and two samples of revised student writing from the two semesters of the expanded class (one of which must engage source materials in a significant way). The student learning outcomes and potential assignments for Comp I-Expanded are the same as Composition I, but the scaffolding of assignments is even more important given the nature of the class. Instructors teaching in the expanded program are expected to review their assignment sequences with the basic writing coordinator prior to the beginning of the semester.
