EH 107 - English Composition II

EH 107 is the second of two sequential composition courses required for all students who have not completed six semester-hours of equivalent college-level courses. This course is designed to further develop the student’s ability to write effectively and stresses the integration of reading and writing. Students study the principles of rhetoric and learn to develop short essays using a variety of paragraphing strategies (comparison/contrast, classification, definition, etc.). Emphasis is placed on the student’s ability to interpret and assimilate reading assignments and to use that understanding as the impetus for his/her own thinking in writing essays. Students will also be introduced to research methods and complete a research essay by the end of the course.
