ENG1141 Creative Writing, SP2021 OL02

ENG1141 Creative Writing, SP2021 OL02

All writing is creative, including the writing you do for school, internet posts to social media, and text/email messages. Where there was a blank page–virtual or otherwise–and you fill it with your words, you have, in fact, drawn on your intellectual resources to create patterns of meaning with those words. “Creative writing,” however, generally refers to poetry, fiction, drama, and some forms of non-fiction–memoirs and narratives that use the techniques of story-telling. We will focus on understanding how form and meaning work together and on understanding the types and complexities of each genre–notably, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, drama, and cross-genres–so each student can begin to develop their unique, individual voice.

ENG1121 English Composition II, SP2020

ENG1121 English Composition II, SP2020

COURSE DESCRIPTION: This is a course in effective essay writing and basic research techniques, including use of the library. Demanding readings are assigned for classroom discussion and as a basis for essay writing. Taken together, the courses (ENG1101 and ENG1121) in the First-Year Writing Program at the New York City College of Technology seek to develop student competencies in five general categories: rhetorical knowledge; writing and reading processes; critical thinking, reading, writing, and research; composing in manual and digital environments; and knowledge of academic conventions. Individual faculty incorporate these competencies into their courses in different ways, but all faculty are able to demonstrate how their courses attend to these matters. 4 hours, 3 credits Prerequisites: CUNY certification in reading and writing. LEARNING OUTCOMES: Please see the attached sheet and keep it handy (given out in class). We will review these during the beginning and throughout the semester. By the end of the term, our goal is to meet each of the learning outcomes. This course syllabus is designed to help us do so.
