ENGLISH 802 GenEd: Analytical Reading and Writing Spring 2011 Gladfelter 659 Section 42/CRN: 050063/4 credits MW 2:00-3:40 Instructor: Dr. Julia Mendenhall Email: juliam@temple.edu Office: 1019 Anderson Hall (10 th Floor, go left out of the elevators) Office Telephone: 215/204-1790 First-Year Writing Program Telephone: 215/204-8518 Our Course Website: http://TUPortal.temple.edu , then “Blackboard,” then “Analytic Read and Writing” TU Computer Help Desk: 215-204-8000 (will help with Blackboard, email, computer/printer problems, etc.) Course Description and Objectives: Our 802 course, which a vital part of the Temple University GenEd curriculum, is designed to help you to develop your self-expression and your ability to focus, as well as the thinking, listening, reading, questioning, writing, time management, teamwork, and leadership skills that will help you succeed—right now— in college and in life. The themes this semester will range from identity, community, diversity, globalization, to politics, knowledge, collaboration, education, and technology. We will collaboratively examine these themes, and in order to do this exploration effectively, we will be analyzing creative non-fiction, “cross-over” scholarly articles, and these readings will not only provoke our curiosity and launch our research, but will also encourage ethical reflection, civic engagement, and awareness of current issues. In two library sessions we will learn to search online databases, identify appropriate sources, and think critically about information, arguments, and ideas. We will learn how to cite these researched sources correctly, how to think through complex texts and ideas, and how to use others’ thoughts in order to discover and craft our own thoughtful, fair, and well- supported arguments.
