“ This course is designated SWS (Supplemental Writing Skills). Completion of English 150 with a grade of C or better (not C-) is the prerequisite. SWS credit will not be given to a student who completes the course before the prerequisite. SWS courses adhere to certain guidelines. Students turn in a total of at least 3,000 words or writing during the term. Part of that total may be essay exams, but a substantial amount of it is made up of finished essays or reports or research papers. The instructor works with the students on revising drafts of their papers, rather than simply grading the finished pieces of writing. At least four hours of class time are devoted to writing instruction. At least one third of the final grade in the course is based on the writing assignments.”
• These requirements will be fulfilled through the laboratory reports for the semester. It will be expected that the level of performance in the laboratory continually improve based upon feedback from the instructor.
