Before continuing, please take a look at the Outcomes statements for English 101 and English 102.
These courses have a unique focus on writing for a range of audiences and rhetorical purposes and many writing classes taken at other institutions do not meet the intended outcomes for University of Louisville's English 101 and 102 first-year writing courses.
