  1.  Develop writing processes pertaining to invention, revision, organization, drafting through multiple drafts, editing, and adjusting for rhetorical context (audience, purpose, persona);
  2.  Produce final products that reflect appropriate textual conventions, with special emphasis on generating longer texts for the academic community;
  3.  Share writing and reading with one another as a means of increasing awareness of rhetorical options and of practicing critical readings of both student and college level texts;   Emphasis is placed on readings drawn from a variety of nonfiction sources;
  4.  Develop critical thinking processes, with special emphasis on the process of primary and/or secondary research (how to find, evaluate, and incorporate research).
