ENG1121 Composition II (D441), Spring 2020

ENG1121 Composition II (D441), Spring 2020

ENG 1121 aims at further developing your reading, writing, and analytical skills while fostering awareness of your own literacy practices. Our focus will be to learn how to successfully asses and adapt to different writing contexts, also known as rhetorical situations. To this end, ENG 1121 provides you with ample opportunities to analyze the rhetorical choices of authors, and then practice authoring your own compositions in the writing styles and mediums that you deem are most effective, given the unique writing situation and the audience being addressed. Along the way, you will engage in metacognitive thinking, or personal reflection, about who you are as a writer, what your beliefs about writing have been and are becoming, what your personal process is, and how you might be able to transfer that process to other courses and even into the work world.

ENG 1101: Seeing, Saying Showing: An Introduction to Writing and the Visual Culture of New York

ENG 1101: Seeing, Saying Showing: An Introduction to Writing and the Visual Culture of New York

English Composition I is a course designed to introduce you to college writing through an exploration of New York City and the rich and varied stories and perspectives of the people who have made it their home. Drawing on readings from a wide variety of genres—as well as your own experience and knowledge—we will investigate the physical space of New York City as well as it’s history, literature and visual culture to explore the relationship between place & identity. In doing so, we will also engage with current debates about gentrification, housing, transportation and public space as they impact people’s lives in the city. In doing so, we will explore the concept of the “right to the city” as it relates to New York City and our own (and others) lives within it. Through the various writing assignments you complete for this class, you will develop effective essay writing and basic research techniques, including the use of the library, digital media, ethnography, archives, oral histories, the streets and your imagination.
