The Three R’s: Reading, Reasoning, and ‘Riting
The course’s general aims are twofold: to strengthen students’ writing and to have them produce it at a functional level consistent with the university’s expectations. Core course elements are:
*an engaged reception of selected works
*an awareness of the varieties of English, their uses and significance
*an ability to produce writing appropriate to an academic context and readership.
This class will emphasize analytical/argumentative writing along with personal/experiential writing. A weekly reading schedule will be assessed through quizzes and discussion posts.
- Three short essays
- Three medium-length essays
- A final portfolio
- The readings are all embedded in the course and will become available by the week.
