The second course in the developmental English sequence continues to emphasize the writing of clear, grammatically correct sentences and logically developed paragraphs, leading to essays. Students will develop close reading and critical thinking skills, with an increasing emphasis on analysis of texts that include editorials, essays, memoir, and fiction. Students will produce at least three formal papers, including a 3-4-page essay that is analytical rather than a merely factual report or personal response. A final grade of C- or better is required to pass this course and proceed to English 101. Prerequisite: ENG 085 with a C- or better; or appropriate Placement Test Scores
