EN 131H - Honors Composition

3 lecture hours 0 lab hours 3 credits
This course is a more challenging, higher-level composition course than EN 131  Composition. Instead of reading derivative composition textbooks, students will read the original classical works by Aristotle and Cicero on which modern texts are based. In addition to reading rhetorical theory, students will also focus on a special topic as the subject matter for their own writing. Film will supplement students’ own reading in the exploration of this topic, and students will conduct their own research to produce an annotated bibliography. Students will review basic principles and techniques of effective writing and then move into a more sophisticated level of textual analysis and writing practice. The revision process is emphasized, and students will submit multiple drafts of the essays to be included in their final portfolios at the end of the quarter. Research methodology and documentation of sources will be addressed.
