The First-Year Writing Program @ CCNY

English 210 Course Learning Outcomes and Requirements

English 21001, 21002, 21003, and 21007

The English 210 courses are writing in the disciplines courses, so the required textbooks and curriculum are varied by individual course. They do share, however, a common set of course learning outcomes. Information relevant to each course is distributed to instructors after course assignment. Digital portfolios are required for all sections of English 210.
