As the catalogue title indicates, this course is all about argumentative writing. Building off of the fundamentals taught in ENGLISH 124/125, this course seeks to refine and improve your ability to construct, develop, and support strong arguments. Throughout the semester we will closely analyze the subtleties and complexities of a wide variety of argumentative types, and employ these strategies in the writing of three fully-polished, medium-length essays (25-30 pages total). Since all essays will rely on outside support, the course will also focus on research methodologies and the integration of secondary sources. Other class assignments will include shorter response essays, quizzes, and active participation in full-class peer workshopping sessions.
