This section presents an advanced study of expository and argumentative techniques, including attendant critical thinking skills. The course is designed to make writers aware of the process and techniques of effective writing. By focusing on how the writer observes, explains, evaluates, and persuades, the assignments will draw upon and sharpen fundamental writing skills. In the course, students will be expected to write often and respond critically to writings by other classmates, to study published works, and to discuss how weak writing fails and how strong writing succeeds. The types of writings that will be considered include memoirs, biographies, news reporting, and essays. Major topics include invention, style, persona, audience analysis, arrangement, and revision.
