  2. Be able to integrate their ideas with those of others using summary, paraphrase, quotation, analysis, and synthesis of relevant sources.
  3. Employ techniques of active reading, critical reading, and informal reading response for inquiry, learning, and thinking.
  4. Be able to critique their own and others’ work by emphasizing global revision early in the writing process and local revision later in the process.
  5. Document their work using appropriate conventions (MLA).
  6. Control sentence-level error (grammar, punctuation, spelling).
