Although they vary in topic, all sections of WR 100 and WR 150 have certain goals in common. All sections of WR 100 help students develop their abilities to:
craft substantive, motivated, balanced academic arguments
write clear, correct, coherent prose
read with comprehension, critical discernment, and engagement
plan, draft, and revise efficiently and effectively
respond productively to the writing of others
express themselves verbally and converse thoughtfully about complex ideas
All sections of WR 150 should help students continue developing these abilities while also introducing them to college-level research.
