WRTG 121 - Composition II: Researching the Public Experience | GEEC


Focuses on academic writing and inquiry. Students use multiple modes of research to develop literacy used in academic and other public contexts. Through extended reading and writing, students engage in the process of writing researched essays that reflect conventions of standard written English and standard documentation styles.

Credit 3 hrs
Grade Mode Normal (A-F)

In WRTG 121, EMU students develop the foundation for writing, research and critical thinking strategies that they will use throughout their college careers and in the workplace. Writings is both a means of communication, and a tool for developing new ideas. Good writers are flexible.  They know how to assess the expectations of a variety of audiences with whom they want to communicate and how to draw on or develop different strategies to meet those expectations. Good writers also understand that different kinds of writing have different conventions and they can move fluidly between those conventions. Writing 121 students develop these strategies that are key to effective communication throughout the course. Students write between 50-70 pages of draft work and between 20-30 pages of polished, final-draft work during the course of the semester, and that work is supported and directed by frequent feedback from the instructor.
