Written Communication (PWC)

GOAL :  To demonstrate error-free prose that conveys meaning to readers with clarity, fluency and sophistication

as measured by students being able to:

  • Write (via inventing, drafting, and revising) text that effectively communicates ideas, facts, and/or information to an audience appropriate for the assignment. 
  • Organize their writing using appropriate strategies (paragraphs, headings, rhetorical arrangement).
  • Utilize various strategies (reasoned argument, examples, etc.) to support ideas expressed in their written work.
  • Incorporate source materials via summarizing, paraphrasing, and/or quoting while consistently applying a citation style appropriate to the discipline (APA, Chicago, MLA, etc.).
  • Apply the conventions (via revision and editing) of standard written English.
