    Course Description: Students enrolled in this course have a dual credit option to receive 3 hours of college credit (ENG 102 – Rhetoric) from Joliet Junior College. This course is designed for students who want to refine their writing skills at the college-level. Readings for the course will be used to generate both writing assignments and discussion topics. Students will employ the writing process—prewriting, drafting, revising, and editing—for major assignments. During the semester, students will write a variety of compositions, including expository, persuasive/argumentative, analytic and technical pieces. There is a summer reading requirement for this course; the reading must be completed prior to the start of the school year. This course meets the state of Illinois guidelines as a writing intensive course.  


    Beginning with the 2019-20 school year, the following dual credit courses through Joliet Junior College will include a $50 fee paid to Joliet Junior College: College Writing I, College Writing II, General Psychology, and Personal Finance. Students may enroll in the course without earning the optional dual credit. Students who choose to earn the dual credit, who pay this fee for dual credit courses with Joliet Junior College, and who attend Joliet Junior College after graduation will receive a $50 credit per course towards their tuition.
