ENGL 1131 FWS: Mastering College Reading and Writing

Course description

(summer only) This course is only offered in the Summer Session.

What does it mean to be a "good" reader or a "good" writer in college? In each section of this course, students receive extensive guidance from their instructors in the discovery and practice of helpful methods for fully exploring and appreciating what they read as well as guidance in planning, drafting, and writing essays about what is read and discussed in class. Each section of the course focuses on a particular topic drawn from a range of fields (e.g., literature, history, film, music). Reading assignments are limited in order to allow ample time for discussion and for personal attention to student writing. First-Year Writing Seminar.

In general, Cornell students are required to take two semesters of First-Year Writing Seminars. Also see your college requirements.
