ENGL101 - Proficiency in Writing

Course Details

Course Code: ENGL101 Course ID: 2852 Credit Hours: 3 Level: Undergraduate

Everybody has something to say, and we all have ideas about life, the universe, who we are and who we are supposed to be. Sometimes those ideas can be difficult to express to others--especially when we are trying to persuade them of something and, maybe most especially, when we need to do it in writing. The disconnect between having something to say and knowing how to say it is nothing new. It stretches back to the dawn of writing, in fact. In this class, we will work to bridge that divide by borrowing from the ancients. We will use classical rhetorical structures to guide us as we work through the basics of making a persuasive argument from the ground up so that expressing ideas in writing becomes easier. The class begins by writing a letter to the editor. From there, we will work with other classic forms to improve our powers of persuasion.
