My Courses

Digital Composition and Rhetoric: Fall 2017

Digital Composition and Rhetoric: Fall 2017

This course is designed to assist students in further developing the writing, reading, and critical thinking practices needed to participate in various academic and professional communities. The course will focus on an inquiry into what writing is and, in the process of that inquiry, we will consider the uses and applications of reading and writing in a digital age. The course is not only structured around an inquiry into various issues related to writing and reading, but, through that inquiry, asks students to develop their understanding of–and comfort with–the writing process, explore their unique relationships to writing and language, and consider how writing relates to critical thinking. The overall goal of the course is to better enable students to structure and complete written work in future courses, as well as to use writing as a means of expression and problem-solving in various academic, creative, personal, and professional projects. There will be a strong emphasis on writing, close textual analysis, and research methods.
