The first of two freshman composition courses, ENGL 101A emphasizes the process of critical thinking, reading, and writing. Student writing progresses from a personal to an academic perspective. Students write for different audiences and purposes using a variety of rhetorical strategies. Students write in response to reading and are introduced to standard documentation procedures. Students are required to submit a final portfolio that meets department requirements.

The class will meet Monday through Thursday from 9:00 to 11:55 AM on the Takoma Park/Silver Spring campus from July 11th to August 16th. If you have questions, please feel free to contact Prof. Matthew Decker at matthew.decker@montgomerycollege.edu.
