Fall Academic Term, 2002 (September 3 - December 20)


ENGLISH 124. College Writing: Writing and Literature.

Instructor(s):

Prerequisites & Distribution: (4). (Introductory Composition).

Credits: (4).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

In this writing course, literary texts fiction, drama, poetry, and essays or other varieties of literary non-fiction will be read and serve as an introduction to analytic and interpretive thinking at the college level. Students will examine the literature for meanings, rhetorical strategies, and the textual development of ideas and use their own writing to explore the many concepts found in that literature. The course is NOT a course in literary analysis only (though some of the writing may take that form). It is primarily a composition course which uses literature to generate ideas for essays and encourages a wide variety of essay forms in response to that literature. Students give careful attention to their own and their classmates' drafts, working to increase their understanding of the organization, argument, audience, voice, and other aspects of academic or public writing. Part of the function of this course is to bring students beyond summary to interpretation, analysis, and exploration of the myriad ideas contained in a single literary text. Generally, students will draft and revise four to six essays, while participating in workshops, conferencing with the instructor, and working with their drafts through the revision and editing process. A variety of informal writings responses, peer reviews, free-writings, exercises, and so forth are generally required as well. In sum, students will write 20-30 pages of revised, polished (graded) prose, and other (often ungraded) writing at the instructor's discretion.

Educational Goals: At the end of the course, students should be able to:
1.Revise argumentative/expository writing in order to improve correctness, appropriateness of expression, and development of ideas
2.Organize essays of varied lengths - from one paragraph to seven pages
3.Use outside sources correctly and effectively in developing ideas
4.Set appropriate individual goals for improving writing and devise effective plans for achieving those goals, and
5.Collaborate with peers to define revision strategies for particular pieces of writing and to set goals for improving writing.

NOTE: It is department policy that students must attend both the first and the second class meetings. Failure to do so may result in the student being dropped from the course.

Robert Frost once wrote: "All the fun's in how you say a thing," and W.H. Auden confesses: "I like hanging around words listening to what they say." Both these poets understood the playfulness - and seriousness - of words. In this course, we'll experiment with words. We'll learn how to make our writing precise by considering a word's connotations, its placement in a sentence or paragraph, and its sound. By examining poetry, essays, and short stories, we'll find out how writers make words work to their advantage (and how words work against the writer's intentions). This course will look at various writing styles and argumentation methods. At the end of the semester, you will have tried some of these methods in your own writing while developing an extensive vocabulary, refining grammar skills, and learning the analytical and critical thinking skills required in college level writing.

When we reflect on our educational experiences, one of the main ways we make sense of our experiences is through our relationships with our teachers. We all have our favorite (and least favorite) teachers, teachers who changed the way we think about the world. We see this focus on teachers reflected in popular culture-in a multitude of TV shows and films that portray a single teacher positively impacting the lives of many students. In this course on "Writing And Literature", we will read contemporary texts that portray student-teacher relationships and interpret, analyze, and explore the texts in classroom discussions and written essays. The works we will read this semester attempt to subvert the representations of teachers and students we often see in popular culture. These works may confuse, trouble, or even anger you. We will work through the texts in class and re-examine our beliefs and assumptions about education. The work we do in this course will develop not only your writing skills, but also the critical thinking skills you will use throughout your time at the university and beyond.

Instructor(s): Jean Borger (borger@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: (4). (Introductory Composition).

Credits: (4).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

This section is reserved for students in the Michigan Community Scholars Program.

This is a "service learning" section. Students in the course will do volunteer work in pairs at a number of designated community sites as part of their class work. All students will be asked to do some on-site writing contributing, for instance, to a grant proposal, newsletter, or brochure, and gaining professional experience in the process in addition to keeping a journal and completing class papers involving response to readings and site experiences.

A primary focus of the course will be students' interactions with their community sites. We will meet weekly to evaluate ourselves; to share writing assignments; to discuss stories, essays, poems, and a novel; and to workshop and edit as a group class papers and the writing projects assigned at our respective non-profit organizations. At the heart of this course are questions of perspective (insider vs. outsider), goals and methods (of the community organization, as well as of the student writer herself), identity (where it comes from and how it evolves and responds to change and interaction with others), community (what it means and how we relate to it), and the role of stories and literature (in our minds, in our lives, and in our communities).

Students in past terms have worked for the HIV/AIDS Resource Center, Motor Meals of Ann Arbor, SOS Community Services, the American Friends Service Committee, Green Baxter Court Community Center, and the American Lung Association. Readings may include the work of Leslie Marmon Silko, James Baldwin, Jimmy Santiago Baca, Robert Coles, Amy Tan, Bruce Springsteen, Gwendolyn Brooks, and John McKnight, among others.

Section 032 Seperation, Absence, & Return.

Instructor(s): Karl Johnson (karljj@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: (4). (Introductory Composition).

Credits: (4).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

Our objective is to develop fundamental skills for writing clear, concise, convincing, and coherent essays about various genres of literature. Towards that goal, this course will be writing intensive. Essays will be written and rewritten. We will discuss and critique student essays in a supportive but critical workshop environment.

Because we need texts to write about, we will read and discuss a small but diverse selection of texts that revolve around Seperation, Absence, and/or Return. In some cases, these are themes and in other cases they are part of the form and structure of our readings. We will focus our attention to moments when the unsayable is said, to significant silences, and to deferred speech. In many cases we will find separation, absence, and return in both the content and the structure of our readings.

In addition to completing all writing assignments, students will be expected to come to class prepared to discuss the texts assigned for the day.

Required texts: the Bible (preferably King James version or Revised Standard version); Constance Hale, Sin and Syntax; Randall E. Dekker, Dekker's Patterns of Exposition; Li-Young Lee, A Winged Life; and a coursepack.

Credits: (4).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

This course is designed to incorporate the reading of literature with analytical thinking in order to develop skills that are fundamentally important to the college-level writer. By applying the basic principles of literary analysis to a variety of texts, you will gain experience in constructing theses, organizing clear, insightful essays, improving writing mechanics and style, and revising drafts thoroughly and productively. Together we will read closely and critically a selection of texts from a variety of genres and periods, each of which addresses the formation of identity in relation to place: How do we think about identity in relation to where we come from and/or the places that have meaning for us? How do different places, such as rooms, natural spaces, neighborhoods, or foreign lands affect the self and how it is described in writing? You will set individual goals for improving your writing, conference with me about strategies for achieving those goals, and collaborate with peers in the revision of your essays. Course requirements include weekly writing assignments (both formal and informal) that address questions and issues that emerge from our readings, as well as active participation in writing workshops and class discussion.

In this course we will spend the majority of our time working on writing compelling and elegant essays about literature. Class time will be spent both discussing poems, short stories, and novels, and exploring the craft of literary analysis through your own essays on the texts. You will receive advice about your writing from your classmates in workshops and discussions, as well as critiques from me on a more individual level. You should be prepared to discuss the texts in depth for each class, and we will spend much time on the practice of close reading and detailed literary analysis - essential skills that will open up the texts in often surprising ways. We will read literature that explores, among other things, the complicated process of identity construction in the modern world: How do we create ourselves as subjects in writing? What is the relationship between the individual and society in these texts? What kinds of encounters do we see between the modern subject and the modern world? What role does literature play in this process of creation (and destruction)?

By connecting the two terms of its title, Writing and Literature aims to help prepare the student to produce the range and quality of expository prose expected in college courses. Works of literature will be considered for their effective use of language and argument. They will serve as reference points for thinking and writing strategies. Characteristically, sections of English 124 will involve the writing of 20-30 pages of revised prose, with considerable attention given to the preparation of drafts and to revision. The literary works which will serve as points of reference will vary from section to section and from term to term.

For a variety of reasons it may be necessary for instructors to change courses or sections prior to the first day of class, although we try to keep this to a minimum. As a result, individual course descriptions are not available.
