[C7G] Education Part 3 of 6: English Composition

Posted on January 10, 2014


(LA121) This two-semester introductory writing course has art, design, and literature as its subject matter, as explored through active reading, critical thinking and discussion, research, and analysis. Both courses teach the writing process from idea generation through drafting to the production of finished, proofread copy, though LA 122 emphasizes research and analysis. Questions asked include the voice of the author, intended audience and goal, the context of history, interpretation, and the creation of meaning. Projects include analytic pieces, research papers, and a variety of essay forms including observational, narrative, and research-based writing which create a final portfolio of students' best work.
