Composition I

English 100 is an introduction to composition. We will be studying different modes of writing, which include life writing, professional writing, and argumentative writing. We also be focusing on the foundations of rhetoric and audience. We are going to study popular culture, movies, and music as a way to engage these practices. We will work hard and also have fun.

You do not need to purchase any texts. Class readings will be all digital, available online and through Laulima. It is your responsibility to bring these to class, either printed out or as an electronic format.
