ENGL 1144 Reading and Writing Non-Fiction Prose
Three (3) credit hours
This course studies contemporary and earlier non-fiction prose models, looking at various techniques that make these essays effective. By examining essays and writing their own, students will work to improve their critical, analytical, and writing skills. There will be some emphasis on basic mechanics, but as part of larger rhetorical issues and argumentative strategies, not by themselves. Tutorials use exercises and discussions to assist this development. Students will write three 500-600 word essays, to be marked by the instructor. The term mark of 50% will depend largely on a student's performance in these essays, but contributions to tutorial discussion may be taken into account. A final examination (50%) will deal with the material covered in the lectures, although considerable emphasis will be placed on the ability to write effectively and to analyse prose.
