Prerequisite: ELAN 87 (taken concurrently); appropriate placement scores
Description: This is the first semester of a two-semester version of English 101 for non-native English speakers. It adds intensive work in grammar, punctuation, building confidence and skill as a writer, and the expectations of American academic writing to the English 101 curriculum.
 ENG 101 serves to explore the relationship between writing and thinking, with a specific focus on application of principles using inquiry and reflection. Students in this course will develop or refine critical thinking strategies within the context and conversation of character building, virtues, and values. Students will engage in writing and thinking while developing rhetorical reading skills as they broaden, deepen, and improve their own writing practice. We will explore every element of the writing process including brainstorming, journal writing, invention, research, synthesis, analysis, revision, editing, application, and reflection. This course also addresses writing and rhetoric in the business world as students demonstrate application of writing principles from the classroom to real-world experiences and observations. Writing will grow out of different purposes as students engage in several writing assignments, including a literature response and application, rhetorical analyses, a research-based inquiry essay demonstrating proper analyses of purposeful information and sources, following appropriate documentation, a business writing portfolio, and a personal philosophy statement reflecting character building and personal development. This course is designed to explore one of Three E’s---Ennoble Souls-- from LDS Business College’s mission statement. This course also fulfills the College-Wide Course ePortfolio requirement.
