ENG1141 Creative Writing, SP2022 D304

ENG1141 Creative Writing, SP2022 D304

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.

ENG925R FYSP Reading Express, Summer 2020

ENG925R FYSP Reading Express, Summer 2020

This course is designed to help you improve your reading comprehension so that you can become a successful college student and citizen. We will focus on developing vocabulary, determining main ideas, finding authors’ supporting ideas and details, and making inferences based on context clues. In order to accomplish the goal of developing your reading comprehension, we will read regularly, we will read a lot, we will read carefully, and we will read critically. We will work on creating effective study habits and methods in order to help you focus on achieving your academic and professional goals. All this reading might sound like heavy lifting—and it should. Reading when unpracticed is difficult. But just like heavy lifting, reading can be made easier with practice—practice not only in reading, but also in writing, discussion and thinking. Reading, writing, discussion, and thinking are precisely what we’re here to do in FYSP Developmental Reading in preparation for the CUNY Reading Proficiency Exam. Not only will the coursework prepare you for the exam, but it will also strengthen your reading, writing, discussion, and thinking skills for the semesters ahead at City Tech, and for life beyond City Tech.
