Guidelines for Writing 101 (20) Course Descriptions/Synopses:

- position writing as central to the work of the course

- provide students with a strong sense of the kinds of writing projects they will encounter

- write it in such a way as to be accessible to a wide range of readers, including first-year students (i.e.,avoid jargon, define terms, and use idioms and cultural references with restraint)
