ENG 190 - Writing as Critical Thinking

Writing as Critical Thinking requires students to read, think, and write carefully and critically, using instructor and peer response as well as self-assessment for revision. Students generate topics that are of interest to them as well as to the communities to which they belong, at Truman State University and beyond. Students are expected to anticipate the demands of various audiences and purposes as they explore questions and issues raised in readings and discussion. Academic honesty and the conventional use of academic sources are also expected, as is the skilled use of academic prose. Excellent writers can challenge this course and satisfy the Essential Skills writing requirement by presenting a portfolio of college-level writing for assessment. Contact the English and Linguistics Department Chair.

Prerequisite: International students who are required to take the English Placement Exam for International Students must pass the exam or complete   with a grade of “D” or higher.
Credits: 3
