Course Details


The principal objectives of this course are to sharpen your critical thinking and reading skills, and to develop both academic and non-academic writing skills. Course methodology is based on the premise that to learn to write well, one must first learn to read well. You will familiarize yourself with and learn to produce different types of writing, including description, chronological storytelling, reporting, and exposition. We will read a wide variety of texts, ranging from ads, such as those that you see in the personal sections of the web, to avant-garde works. Readings will be taught in cultural context.
