Class Outline and Expectations
In this course students will be introduced to four works of classic literary fiction from a variety of genres: an epic/social comedy, romance, domestic fiction, and epistolary novel. Additionally, students will develop skills in two key writing disciplines: short personal essay (excellent preparation for applications/personal statements) and persuasive. Each week I will provide materials (generally in a PPT) posted to the Slides and Resources folder to guide students in completing their homework. Students will complete weekly writing assignments due 24 hours before class. Late work will be graded after class, as the deadline is already intended to give students the maximum amount of time to complete their work. While individual grades won’t be lowered as a result of late submissions, their final grade may be lowered if late work becomes a pattern. Each student will receive a letter grade (A/B/C/D) on each assignment as well as a final grade. Individual assignments and final grades will be determined according to the guidelines below.
