The written work that you do in all your courses will build on the foundation established in College Writing I: Writing and Literary Study, developing your ability to think and to communicate your thoughts in writing.
In the academic world, as in the world at large, readers will judge your written work primarily on the basis of its content; that is, on the quality of the information and opinions it contains. However, the careful organization and the clear, concise expression of that content are essential if your readers are to grasp your full meaning.
The faculty will therefore evaluate the organization and expression of your written assignments along with the content. Individual departments and instructors may add their own requirements to this statement, and each instructor will decide how the various elements will influence grading in a particular course. However, in the course that you will take to satisfy your graduation requirement in writing, you will be given a grade of Incomplete and referred to the Writing Center if your writing has severe problems.
This will apply regardless of the average grade of any other work done in that course. If you have questions about these standards, you may seek clarification from your instructors, from the English Department, or from the Center for Writing Excellence staff. The Center for Writing Excellence Sprague Library, first floor, offers consultation and tutorial help to all students, ideally through regularly weekly appointments, but also on a drop-in basis.
