Sánchez, Fernando; Lane, Liz; Carter, Tyler
Composition Studies, v42 n2 p118-146 Fall 2014
English 106: Introductory Composition is a mandatory four credit hour course offered at Purdue University. English 106 is offered by the English department through the Introductory Composition at Purdue program (ICaP), supervised by the Writing Program Administrator (WPA) of first-year composition (FYC). Students enrolled in English 106 gain "extensive practice in writing clear and effective prose and instruction in organization, audience, style, and research-based writing" ("Introductory Composition"). The goal of English 106, First Year Composition, is to help students learn strategies and practices of research, analysis, and rhetorical composition. Over the course of the fall semester, the class will focus on investigating writing and research broadly as a topic of study. To do this, they will begin by investigating their own reading and writing practices. Then students will embark on an investigation of what it means to be a reader and writer in communities and public issues surrounding literacy. The course explores various tools for creating unique composition arguments, such as images, videos and digital stories, web-based platforms, and more.
