This course runs from September 07, 2021 to December 23, 2021

This course provides intensive instruction and practice in writing starting with brainstorming, drafting, and organization. It is designed to practice writing coherent paragraphs and essays for specific audiences; each unit of study includes drafting, revision, and editing processes as well as instruction in grammar and mechanics. This course is part of the Accelerated Learning Program (ALP). Students will have the opportunity to finish EN003 Essentials of Writing AND EN111 College Writing at the same time. After successful completion, students will have met their General Education Basic Communications requirement, which means they can move forward with their college and career goals at Herkimer County Community College.*** Please note: The course is a remedial course and does award college level credit. EN003 will not count toward any degree requirement including elective credit, but it does count as part of student’s course load for the semester; it also counts toward financial aid eligibility, and eligibility to live in campus housing.
