TICE ENGL 2010 introduces students to the basic principles of argumentative writing in academic settings. The curriculum emphasizes writing as a process, textual analysis, writing from research, and collaborative writing. This course is structured so that a variety of smaller assignments culminate in two extended writing projects. For the first, students read a set of texts on a common topic and compose an essay. For the second, students identify a topic of their own, conduct independent research, and compose an essay.

ENGL 2010 prepares students to join conversations on important topics as informed and responsible participants so that they may contribute meaningfully. By the end of the course, students will be able to write clear, coherent, thesis-driven arguments that are well-edited. Students who successfully complete this course will be able to find, evaluate, and manage sources, understand those sources in relation to ongoing conversations, and enter into dialogue with them in their essays. Furthermore, they will be able to adapt their writing to a variety of situations inside and outside of the university.
