ENGL 101 Introduction to Composition
English 101 incorporates Coast Mountain College's focus on experiential place-based learning. "Experiential learning means engaging with learners in direct experience and focused reflection to increase knowledge, develop skills, clarify values and develop people's capacity to contribute to their communities. Place-based learning connects classroom to learning from, about, in, and for the local environment, cultures, history, economy and politics." (https://www.coastmountaincollege.ca) Students are encouraged to consider their own lives, communities, experiences, and interests when selecting research topics. English 101 seeks to provide students with an introduction to academic writing through the identification, understanding, and use of the distinctive features of this genre. Through their reading, reflection, and discussion of academic writing, students will gain skills in employing these same features of academic writing in their own work. This particular course makes use of peer-reviewed material from a variety of disciplines in order to provide students with a broad view of the kinds of strategies and features academic writers use to signal their intent and message to their readers. This is not a remedial course. Ultimately, students who successfully complete English 101 acquire core research and writing skills that will promote success in their ongoing academic and/or professional development.
