English 101 is an introductory composition course, designed to improve your skills in expository and persuasive writing; the writing you will be doing in other courses in college and in many jobs. Sometimes this kind of writing is called transactional writing because it’s used to transact something—inform and (often) persuade a reasonably well-educated audience; conduct business; and evaluate, review, or explain a complex process, procedure, or event. The idea of this course is to develop your writing skills in conjunction with topics that interest you. This course focuses on the importance of reading and writing (more largely education in general) and how we can use those tools to help within our communities.
During this class, we will be investigating the basic question: “What is literature?” What does literature mean to you? How do we define literature? What is counted as literature and why? What does literature have to do with popular culture? Does literature have value in today’s society? How does literature fit into our modern lives? Is literature important anymore? Why do we need (or not need) literature? How should literature be approached in schools? How have different concepts/ideas been portrayed in literature throughout history? What is canonical literature? Why does a lot of canonical literature reflect limited points of view? The idea of this course is to develop your writing skills in conjunction with topics related to literature that interests you. This semester we will be focusing our course on the importance of reading and writing (more largely education in general) and how we can use those tools to think and write critically about the things we read.
The five paper assignments this collection guide students from personal writing to academic writing, and from writing with a provided source through finding and citing general sources and scholarly sources to stake out a position.

The different techniques used in each of the first three papers are all applied in the longer fourth paper, for which students “adopt” a short story and its author, performing wide-ranging general and scholarly research to create a unified discussion.
