Hybrid Class, classroom and online. A composition course which takes literature as its subject matter, ENG 126 builds on the competencies developed in ENG 125, in close reading, argumentation, and writing from sources, and applies them in a new context. Students will read a variety of short literary works including poetry, fiction, and/or drama, and will practice responding to them in class, and writing about them both informally and formally. Students are also asked to produce a research paper related to themes or questions evoked by the literature. Students will spend one hour per week in conferences, collaborative learning activities, or peer review. This course may be offered as an online course. Preq: ENG 125.
