Developmental English

The objective in Developmental English is to offer relevant course work to assist students with the knowledge and skills needed to think critically and to communicate clearly and effectively.

This objective is carried out through the offering of the following courses:

Basic English I (ENG 092)
This course is a review of basic writing skills and basic grammar. Emphasis is placed on the composing process of sentences and paragraphs in standard American written English. Students will demonstrate these skills chiefly through the writing of well-developed, multi-sentence paragraphs.

Basic English II (ENG 093)
This course is a review of composition skills and grammar. Emphasis is placed on coherence and the use of a variety of sentence structures in the composing process and on standard American written English usage. Students will demonstrate these skills chiefly through the writing of paragraph blocks and short essays.

The Writing Center
As a result of a grant, Wallace Community College implemented a Writing Center for both campus locations. This Writing Center is available to all students throughout the institution for assistance with all writing, compositional, and written communication needs. The Developmental English classes (ENG 092 and ENG 093) were upgraded to a 4 semester hour class utilizing a one hour per week Writing Lab component.  For more information about The Writing Center please visit its page.
