English 28 is an inquiry-based writing course. We will use writing to investigate issues that influence our lives,and in so doing, develop habits of mind that are important not only for writer but for active participants in ourcommunity. These habits include: assessing audience expectations, reading critically, engaging with diverseideas, developing control over rhetorical styles, and developing and reflecting about our writing processes. Inshort, we will investigate not only how writing may be used to communicate ideas but also how we can use writing and reading to create and express our own ideas.
English 21 with a passing grade, or appropriate placement recommendation based on assessmentresults and other multiple measures.
Course Description:
 English 28 satisfies part of the requirement for the AA degree and also prepares the student forEnglish 101 by increasing his/her capability to work on an academic level. In this class, we will plan,revise, and edit compositions of increasing sophistication and complexity. All writing is based on
readings that challenge our thinking and provide an intellectual background for writing assignments.The course also advances skills in paragraph structure, sentence variety, thesis development,organization, coherence, and language conventions as well as prepares them for English 101.18 lab hours are also required. The focus of the class is compositions and essays (up to 500 words),including the research paper.
Student Learning Outcomes:
  As a result of this learning experience, a student can:1.
Understand and participate in diverse discourse communities within the academic or broader social setting.2.
 Write 300-500 word compositions and essays for academic or workplace purposes.3.
Recognize and apply rules for edited sentences, grammar, and word choice, and begin toincorporate stylistic techniques into his/her own writing.
I also hope that taking this class will inspire you to think about how youcommunicate with others and encourage you to continue to develop your writing,not only academically, but for pleasure as well.Textbooks:
