In this course we will focus on two major aspects of communicative
writing: (1) writing in and for “academia” and (2) writing in and for the world
outside of the academic institution. While the major focus of this course will
be refining your writing in both grammar and style, your assignments are
designed to help you as a first year writing student at the university, but
also as a participant in the larger community.
This is a writing intensive course. Writing assignments will include: (1)
Response to film, (2) Literature Review, (3) Argumentative Paper with Research,
(4) Letter for Change, (5) Cover letter, and (6) Resume. Other in-class work
includes small writing assignments, peer workshopping, and class discussion.
