Summer Enrichment Writing Workshop

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Summer Enrichment Writing Workshop (SEWW) gives incoming freshmen placed into a preparatory writing course the opportunity to sharpen their writing skills before coming to UIC in the fall. Students will write papers in two different genres; brush up on their grammar, note-taking, critical reading, and study skills; and learn all about the drafting and revising process that’s crucial to success in English 160. Those who placed into ENGL 071, ENGL 070, or ENGL 060 as a result of the Writing Placement Exam will have the chance to petition for a higher course placement through compiling writing portfolio at the end of the six weeks. You’ll have the chance to get to know your instructors, gain experience in the writing you’ll be doing in your first year, and get familiar with UIC so that you’ll come to campus in the fall fully equipped to succeed!
