ENG1023 Introductory Writing


Welcome to this research guide for Introductory Writing. This guide will help you find resources that you can use for your course project and CRA paper.

Introductory Writing students practice and acquire the fundamental writing principles: parts of speech; sentence structure and sentence types, from simple to compound-complex; and punctuation. The course project consists of four assigned essays, each being submitted incrementally; thus, students receive individual feedback from instructors throughout the course. Additionally, the collateral writing assignment teaches vital research skills; it requires students to develop a research question and thesis statement. Next they gather notes from scholarly sources, organize their body of research, and write an accurately documented report.

Global University does not necessarily agree with all the views represented in the resources in this guide. These are provided for the student to contrast and compare with the Biblical text and ideas presented in the Global University IST.
