Composition and Critical Thought

Composition and Critical Thought
ENGL106*
This class focuses on the development and refinement of students’ rhetorical skills through the lens of the relationship between images and text. Students are expected to express their ideas with clarity of purpose in a logical, organized manner in four to five longer essays which, in addition to all the skills emphasized in the previous classes, also demonstrate critical thinking, style, logic, voice, development, and syntactic sophistication. Students also study models of argumentation. A minimum grade of “C” (2.0) is required to pass this course.
 
Prerequisite: Successful completion of ENGL104
Critical Analysis and Semiotics or placement through the English Placement Exam.
