RLC 110 Course Description

From the University of Hartford Undergraduate Bulletin:

"RLC 110 Reading and Writing I [3] Introduces students to the complex literacies of reading, writing, and thinking that are required in many freshman-level courses. Reading and writing are studied as processes of the creation of knowledge through reflection and revision, and students begin to analyze the complex cultural, social, and linguistic forces that shape all acts of reading, writing, and thinking, especially their own. The goal of this course is to enable students to gain confidence and expertise in critically evaluating their own positions and those of others through writing. Designated sections of this course will call for additional work in basic skills. This course may not be elected on a Pass/No Pass basis."
