Unless otherwise indicated, a grade of C or higher is required for all prerequisite courses.
Socially relevant readings introduce students to academic reading, writing, and research. Students analyze complex fiction and/or non-fiction texts and write expository or argumentative essays with persuasive claims and evidence. Revision and proofreading skills are developed over multiple drafts in a feedback-rich environment. Students reflect on their positions in relation to larger social, cultural, and economic issues.
