Throughout this text, blurbs are embedded at the beginning of each chapter to indicate which programmatic objectives each chapter will address. We encourage students and instructors to use them as a tool in guiding writing and reading instruction for first-year writing courses. For the full list of objectives click here.
Although each chapter features several objectives addressed in the blurbs, these are not the only goals that students and instructors may highlight in the chapters. Thus, students and instructors are encouraged to generate their own goals in addition to the programmatic objectives endorsed by General Education English for first-year writing courses.
