U350-102 Freshman Composition

Designed to provide a “persuasive edge” for academic and most other kinds of writing, this course focuses on the techniques of persuasion as well as on detecting connon writing and documentation problems and learning ways to correct them. For most units, students write a short paper based in the reading assignments. Students also write a slightly longer, resourse-based paper. All necessary resource materials for the assignments are available in The Language of Argument and (if the student selects the novel option for the final paper) in the critical edition of the optional novel.
