WRTG 112 is a required course for all students so that is probably one reason you are taking it. However we all have individual backgrounds and goals that affect how we approach a learning experience. Read over the course syllabus and then post your responses tothe followingquestions in two paragraphs: What prior experiences do you have that inform how you approach this class? This could be for example writing experience that you think will either help or hurt you as you work on the academic writing assigned in class. What are some of your aspirations (educational professional or other goals) that you can work toward by taking Introduction to Writing and how might this course help you on your path toward your goals? Which if any of the reasons for taking college courses discussed by Michelle Singletary in Getting to the Real Point of College apply to you?
