English 1010 Student Handbook

The following handbook is designed as a reference source as you progress through ENGL 1010.  Essentially, this course seeks to provide you with the ability to develop three key college skills: reading critically, understanding core writing tasks, and writing persuasive essays.  Over the course of the semester, your instructor will help you develop your understanding of these skills.

Writing Persuasive Essays

The heart of the course is creating successful persuasive essays. Our course breaks this skill into four key sections: purpose, structure/development, sources/evidence, and tone/conventions. Each section presents its own challenges and has its own terminology.
