ENGL 210 - Honors English
How does the place where you are from or where you live influence who you become, how you think, or how you read? Using both “hands on” experiences and library sources, we will explore the concepts of place and literacy—and their connections. I have three goals for this course: first, that you feel more confident producing the type of academic prose valued by professors across the disciplines; second, that you continue to build successful paper-writing skills, such as careful reading and rereading, note-taking, analyzing and using sources, and developing and revising arguments; and third, that this course allows you the opportunity to work with other writers in and out of class. By the end of the course, you can expect that you will have increased your repertoire of critical reading and writing strategies and have a fuller understanding of yourself as a reader and writer.
