Eng 201 | Intro to Literature | Prof. Elida Cisneros | Fall 2022

English 201 is a writing course that builds upon the skills introduced in English 101. In this course, literature is the field for the development of critical reading, critical thinking, independent research, and writing skills. Like English 101, it is required of all students at BMCC, no matter what their curriculum. Assignments move from close readings of literary texts in a variety of genres to analyses that introduce literary terms and broader contexts, culminating in independent research.

English 101: Introduction to Composition I [Wilson]

English 101: Introduction to Composition I [Wilson]

English Composition I is the standard 3-credit / 4 hour plus conference freshman writing course. The course introduces students to academic writing. By its conclusion, students will be ready for English 201 and for the writing they will be asked to do in advanced courses across the curriculum. Students completing English 101 will have mastered the fundamentals of college-level reading and writing, including developing a thesis-driven response to the writing of others and following the basic conventions of citation and documentation. They will have practiced what Mike Rose calls the “habits of mind” necessary for success in college and in the larger world: summarizing, classifying, comparing, contrasting, and analyzing. Students will be introduced to basic research methods and MLA documentation and complete a research project. Students are required to take a departmental final exam that requires the composition of a 500 word thesis-driven essay comparing and contrasting two essays.
