Writing 1310 is the required First-Year Writing course at the University of Central Arkansas. This course is similar to my English 125 course, but has been adapted to meet the needs of UCA’s student population, and to better align with the institutional context here.
This course is designed to give students the skills they need write persuasively in academic contexts.
In my first semester at UCA, I taught this course using a Course Grading Contract. In the Spring semester, I used a more traditional grading structure. I’ve included both syllabi here.
