More research time today, but this time we discussed and then attempted to use sources from the web. We will start writing next week, so students need to be wrapping up their research soon. Homework: if you don’t have 6–9 note cards done, you should complete some over the weekend or visit the Academic Center in the Skyline Library from 2:30–3:30 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
This class is an opportunity for students to develop and practice their skills in reading and analysis of literature as well as writing. Our various texts will be the vehicles through which they will hone their critical thinking abilities, and our writing exercises will be an outlet of expression for these abilities. We will be reading poetry, short fiction, novels, and dramatic texts. Our objectives are to master the elements of literature, practice the writing process, and improve organization of writing.
