Writing assignments will vary and increase in complexity from a short, one-page summary to one long, ten to twelve page research paper. Except for in-class writing, all papers must be fully documented according to MLA standards. Students who receive at least a C in the class will not be required to take a second semester of composition. 3 class hours.
