ENG - 014A-D Mastery Writing - Individualized

(1-4 s.h.)

Prerequisite: Recommendation of current/previous instructor, college recommendation, college placement or student request.
The Mastery Writing course provides developmental writing instruction to students referred by orientation assessment or by instructor that require a competency-based approach to improving their writing skills or to meet student-initiated goals. Emphasis is on writing as a process; students will learn strategies for recognizing and compensating for individual writing problems. Completion of the course may include achieving mastery in three areas: language (grammar and mechanics), conceptual aspects (planning, style, content), and/or structure (organization, development, and support). Students’ ability to succeed in a self-management style course will be assessed prior to approving registration in the course. Learning objectives include achievement demonstrated by mastery through writing samples. Textbook requirements may include the purchase of a software access code or workbook. Credit earned will not satisfy the requirements for an Associate Degree and will not be used in calculating the cumulative grade point average for graduation. This course may be repeated. This course has been designated as pass/no pass.
