Critical Reading and Writing addresses three essential questions: How do writers use words to create worlds? What unique perspectives can each reader bring to a text? Why does point of view matter?
Focusing on traditional literary genres: lyric (poetry), narrative (short fiction), and drama, students build their critical reading and writing skills. They explore literature from a range of time periods and perspectives, forging a clear connection between active reading and strong academic writing. Weekly practice includes reading, annotation, writing literary analysis and participating in class discussions. Students also work on editing, proofreading, grammar and vocabulary development throughout the session. Please join us if you are ready to take your academic work to the next level.
