Meeting Times Section 010 TR: 11:15-12:30 pm DH 4468 Contact Information Assistant Professor: Nathan Valle Email: [email protected] Office: DH 4442-S Office Hours: MW 1:00-4:00 TR 9:15-11:15 F (by appointment only) Course Description Composition and Literature continues the emphasis on writing. Two analytical papers—based upon studies of the short story, poetry, and drama—and a research paper, sequentially developed, are required. Requisites English 101 or advanced standing on the placement test. It is the student’s responsibility to make up any prerequisite deficiencies, as stated in the Liberty University Catalog, which would prevent the successful completion of this course. Rationale English 102 continues the development of college-level writing skills and practice, providing students opportunities to evaluate literature from a biblical worldview; to examine structure, aesthetics, and issues; and to organize thinking in written form. In addition, the research paper requirement strengthens the students' skills in investigating, analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating the ideas of others, while also sharpening students' expression of their own conclusions. The introduction to literature enriches the students' general understanding of human experience which will assist them in subsequent courses and in life. Measurable Learning Outcomes When students have completed this course, they should have acquired the skills and knowledge required 1. Write a persuasive analysis of a literary work. 2. Apply the process approach (especially writing effective thesis, outlining, drafting, revising, and editing) to write competent essays.
