Description
This is a college level course that is designed to help students gain an understanding of the principles of effective writing. As a student in this class, you will be required to write and read as often as possible. You will study and analyze works of prose from various fields and periods primarily in American Literature. Much of the work studied will be non-fiction. These works will serve as models of effective styles of writing. Such works may have the purpose to describe, narrate, argue, define, classify, etc. You will then be expected to write with such purposes in mind and develop your own unique writing style. Finally, the organized study of the structures of sentences, paragraphs, and larger discursive patterns will introduce you to the semantic, structural, and rhetorical resources of the English language
