Two significant changes have occurred that substantially impact students’ initial first-year writing course (most often, English 101 or 102): a new course sequence and a new placement process. While both of these changes have been piloted for several years, the placement process is in the 2013 catalog and the curriculum change will be reflected in the 2014 catalog.
Your interactions with students are *critical* to ensuring that students take the writing course selection process seriously and understand its importance. We really appreciate your help in this regard.
The First Year Writing Program has prepared this FAQs document to help clarify the importance of these changes. They are happy to answer questions and meet with you.
