Composition I

In this course there will be 9 essays which will
cover the major types of expository writing. In addition, there will be
in-class writing on assigned readings related to the essays and at- home
writing on the videos we will see. A major feature of this course will be the
use of comparison-contrast formats in which the students will compare the
written text with its cinematic version. There is no formal textbook, but we
will have a course text composed of various assignments, lessons, and
readings.  Attendance is an essential
part of the course.
