Welcome to English 100
English 100 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is an introduction to college composition. The course prepares students for the demands of writing in the university
while providing an occasion to think about writing beyond the classroom and in a variety of contexts.
By placing attention on rhetorical awareness in both written and oral communication, students engage questions of audience, purpose, genre, discourse conventions, and research methods. Because writing is both an act of inquiry and communication, this course offers students an opportunity to identify, develop, and express concepts, to engage in conversations with the ideas of others, and to critique and construct arguments through original research. Treating writing as a process, instructors emphasize drafting, revising, and editing as critical practices in developing effective communication and argument.
