Registration for this session has been closed.

Course Overview: 
This course emphasizes the theme of morality. Students will tackle difficult questions introduced in literature, but applicable to real life. They will practice respectfully articulating their opinions and sharing perspectives in a constructive way. This theme takes inspiration from the “zoom in” and “zoom-out” principle often taught in upper-level writing (wherein “zoom in” is a careful analysis of literature and assigned texts and then a “zoom out,” is an analysis of how the text comments on broader societal trends). The class will cover three different writing styles, thus allowing students to explore various strategies for considering morality through literature. The course will cover academic, creative, and persuasive writing. In addition to in-class lessons students also have access to a library of video lectures intended to supplement students’ learning. Further, office hours as well as by appointment. In preparation for this course, there is a pre-class assignment!
