ENG 229 - Advanced Composition Credits: 3


This course is designed to help students make their writing more sophisticated and more effective in the rhetorical situations for which it is composed and to increase their understanding of language and the writing process. We will cover the study of rhetorical principles that will help students craft strategic arguments for specific audiences in particular contexts. Students should anticipate writing a minimum of 20 original pages distributed across several graded assignments, in support of which we will hold in-class workshops, discussions, smaller ?lead-in? writing assignments, instructor feedback, and group exercises. Students will learn to appreciate the choices open to them in their writing, examining model prose from several genres and writing polished essays of their own.

Prerequisite(s): ENG 114   or ENG 115   or HON 106
