This course is designed to introduce you to college
writing and critical thinking. We will learn different methods of reading, work
collaboratively through peer reviews, and develop researching strategies to
refine our own writing processes. Attendance and participation is critical
since our work will be collaborative. Readings will range from essays and
criticism, to prose and visual culture.



Major assignments
include five papers, along with drafts and peer reviews. We will also have
short weekly responses submitted through Laulima.

All readings will
be available online and through Laulima.
