English 1413 A1: Writing and Reading Critically
Fal Term: MW 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm. Location: BAC 237

This course will use literary studies as our foundation to approach ideas of communication, narrative, persuasive rhetoric, and media forms and functions. Close readings, comparative considerations and an exploration of the form, content and context of a number of representative literary works will be used to better understand the ways that narrative traditions have persisted and evolved through the past 400 years. In this course, I hope to: (a) encourage your curiosity about the human condition through narrative literature from various historical periods (b) help to improve your skills in comprehension, composition and independent critical thought, and (c) offer ways for you to proactively take ownership of your own narrative path through this course.
