CWP Offering CW R4A: Reading and Composition

CWP is now offering R4A, a 4-unit course that satisfies the first half of the Reading and Composition Requirement.  It is designed to offer students structured, sustained, and highly articulated practice in the recursive processes entailed in reading, critical analysis, and composing. Students will read five thematically related book-length texts, or the equivalent, drawn from a range of genres, in addition to non-print sources. In response to these materials, they will craft several short pieces leading up to three longer essays—works of exposition and/or argumentation. Students will write a minimum of 32 pages of expository prose during this semester.

Prerequisite for the course: a passing score (8 or higher) on the Analytical Writing Placement Exam, or 680 or higher on the SAT.
