Required text: Course
Reader (CRDG Marketing and Publication, Castle 101)


SLO: ENG 200 further
develops the writing and research skills covered in ENG 100. The course
therefore aims to have students produce university-level writing and to involve
them in discussions of notions such as style, register, fluency, and
appropriacy, as well as consideration of the role and significance of the
standard dialect, particularly within the context of the university.


Core course elements are

            * an engaged reception of selected
works of fiction, non-fiction, and film

            * an awareness of the varieties of
English, their uses and significance

            * an ability to produce writing
appropriate to a particular context and readership

            * a discussion of, and practice in,
English for Academic Purposes.


The class will emphasize
analytic and argumentative writing, but elements of creative and personal
writing will also be encouraged. There will be several required conferences,
and the final research paper will be presented in-class (using PowerPoint).


Final grades will be
awarded as follows:

1)  Eight short papers posted on Laulima (with
subsequent revisions)   (50%)

2)  Research paper (also to be presented in
class) (40%) 

3)  Full attendance (10%)
