Hi there. I'm Dr. Mike Mutschelknaus, an instructor at Rochester Community and Technical College. I've been teaching freshman composition and developmental writing courses full-time for 26 years now. Each semester, I teach about 100 students. I enjoy my work and my students. I also realize that it's easy for us community college instructors to get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of students we teach. Also, our students get overwhelmed by the sheer cost of their tuition and books. I've designed this OER collection so that you, my fellow instructor, can easily find high-quality educational resources for your students. If your students are like mine, they can no longer afford textbooks. You can use these resources, for free, instead. Thanks for all of the great work you do as a community college teacher! Feel free to contact me at <mike.mutschelknaus@rctc.edu>. I would love to hear from you. --Mike--

This course promotes clear and effective communication by sharpening critical thinking and writing skills. The first unit is designed to change the way in which students think about writing--as a conversation rather than a solitary act. The second unit focuses on academic writing and explores the PWR-Writing or Power-Writing Method (PWR Pre-Write, Write, Revise). The remaining units will focus on the minutiae of good writing practices, from style to citation methodology. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to: Demonstrate mastery of principles of grammar, usage, mechanics, and sentence structure. Identify the thesis in another individual's essay. Develop a thesis statement, structure it in an introductory paragraph, and support it with the body of the essay. Organize ideas logically within an essay, deploying adequate transitional devices to ensure coherence, flow, and focus. Differentiate between rhetorical strategies and write with an awareness of rhetorical technique and audience. Differentiate between tones and write with an awareness of how tone affects the audience's experience. Demonstrate critical and analytical thinking for reading and writing purposes. Quote, paraphrase, and document the work of others. Write sentences that vary in length and structure. (English 001)
