Course Objectives: English 1110.01 is designed to encourage and instruct academic research and writing with focus on developing skills in writing, reading, critical thinking, and oral expression.
Course Content: This first year writing course will analyze and produce essays examining the culture messages of movies and how they relate to our shared ideas of community. The course theme is intended both to offer us a motivation for analyzing and producing texts as well as allowing for a collective reconsideration of the ways contemporary culture shapes us as writers, students, and citizens.
Method of Presentation: Lecture, discussion, analyzing texts.
Method of Evaluation: Three major essays plus small assignments. Essays are designed to allow students to first gather information and present it in a logical way. Next, students take that same information and go a step further by analyzing the cultural impact of that information. Finally, students will write an opinion piece based on their information and analysis.
