University-approved objectives for courses for Category 5.B include: (a) developing the ability to be an informed observer of or active participant in the visual, spatial, musical, theatrical, rhetorical, or written arts; (b) learning to describe and interpret achievement in the arts and literature; (c) learning to explain how works of art and literature express social and cultural issues.] Required Texts Eng 201 Anthology available in class R 9/20 and T 9/25 or online  at  http://www.zippublishing.com/CourseIndexWi07.html Burney, Frances.
