about the college composition program

College Composition courses (ENC 1101 and ENC 2135) at Florida State University teach writing as a recursive and frequently collaborative process of invention, drafting, and revising. Writing is both personal and social, and students learn how to write for a variety of purposes and audiences.

For instructors of College Composition, The Teachers’ Guide provides introductory material to the College Composition Program and a toolkit for developing course material. Sample syllabi for our courses are also provided in the Teachers' Guide and on our College Composition Website, which also provides sample project prompts, assessment guides, and supplemental readings. The Inkwell represents an archive of activities and exercises to be used in our writing classrooms, and plagiarism exercises are found here in keeping with Florida State University’s plagiarism policy.  Our Own Words represents a collection of undergraduate writing from our College Composition courses.  In addition, each year, the College Composition Committee awards the James M. McCrimmon Award for best student writing of the year and publishes this work in Our Own Words.
