ENGL 190 Introduction to University Writing
English 190 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 working on assignments for the course English 190 is designed to familiarize students with the academic and writing skills necessary to be successful at the university level. Students will be supported as they work on reading, writing, and speaking in the context of the university. Using a variety of documents, students will work to develop skills to recognize and employ strategies that will help them succeed as students. By the end of the course, students should be able to produce a library-based research paper. This is a hands-on, workshop-style course. Short lectures will be followed by in-class assignments that will help students understand the broad theme of university skills. The course textbook will be supplemented by the textbook and course notes that are essential to the production of course assignments.
