This course is based on the idea that writing is a process. Even the most talented published writers cannot sit down and produce a polished text on the first try. Instead, they -- like the rest of us -- have to read texts and talk to people and search out experiences that serve as both the inspiration and the building blocks of their work. They use writing as a means to discover ideas, as well as to convey them. Successful papers will be well researched and argued, well-structured, show a familiarity with the conventions specific to academic writing and be interesting and original.

 

Course Requirements:

- write several types of essays (informal and formal argument, critical analysis)
- participate in peer editing of drafts on dates assigned
- produce critical reading and class work assignments
- be on time for class
- complete class and homework assignments
- submit assigned work on due date, in class, and stapled.
