This course will help you to develop skills – as effective writers and readers – essential to your success in your college coursework and in your future careers. We will be focusing on research skills and argumentation this semester, with a specific emphasis on the writing process ranging from topic generation to initial research to drafting to submission. Further, as a participant in an Honors course, you will engage more challenging reading and writing assignments. We will be focusing on both literary and critical texts in the course to help you develop higher-level critical skills and research techniques. The major literary texts for the course are centered around a broad theme of societal disruption and disintegration. It is my hope that these texts will raise questions about our own local and national experience and about the nature and responsibilities of societal membership. Of course, this is primarily a writing course, and our assignments and discussion will be ultimately focused on your development as writers and thinkers. Major outcomes of this course include (but are not limited to): Developing good reading and writing habits, including idea generation, note-taking, revision, and editing Learning to support your ideas and opinions with evidence and proper documentation
