It is possible that many of you will go on to careers in the sciences. Science, technology, and its effects will be an inescapable part of life even for those of you who go on to other careers. In the university setting, "science" and "the arts" are (unfortunately) often seen as two completely different "camps" or "cultures" which do not have much to say to each other. One purpose of this course is to question this idea. How can "science" and "humanities" be made to dialog with each other? This will be the underlying question that we will be asking of all the texts that we will read in this class. However, the purpose of reading the texts and of participating in our class discussions is to get yourself to think about and concentrate on your own writing. The true theme of this class, in the real sense of the word, will, thus, be your own 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.

Writing is a supremely unnatural act, and that can be a great comfort. Since writing is an acquired skill, we can always change how we write, and we can always make new discoveries about our own potential as writers. This course will introduce you to your power to change as a writer. You will come to experience the joy of learning to use words as efficient tools, the pleasure of developing a style of expression that enhances your ideas, and the satisfaction of exploring your ideas through writing about them. By analyzing mostly non-fiction texts from a variety of academic disciplines, you will come to understand the conventions writers follow to present their ideas effectively to their chosen audiences. How and when might you use their conventions in your own writing? How, for example, would a description of a summer meadow change if you revised it to become part of a contemplative essay on your emotional responses to nature, a lab report, a comparison of Romantic and Postmodern attitudes toward nature, an analysis of Annie Dillard's nature writing, or a report on the ecological effects of drilling for oil? In this course, you will have the opportunity to learn the writing skills that will permit you to address such diverse tasks and to express yourself appropriately in the very complex system of social interactions that make up the University.

Basic Course Requirements: 20-30 pages of revised, polished 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.

Course Homepage: http://coursetools.ummu.umich.edu/2003/winter/english/125/005.nsf

his course is designed to introduce you to a variety of writing strategies and to give you practice in composing a variety of kinds of writing. Reading and writing assignments will focus on topics related to popular culture, to everyday life. This is not a course about popular culture per se; rather, my goal in basing the course on popular issues is for you to begin the process of learning to write essays associated with academic discourse while also seeing how flexible—and stimulating—this sort of writing can actually be. In this class, you will generate writing topics; you will read and evaluate popular texts; you will participate in small-group and class discussions; you will write, evaluate what you’ve written, and then revise what you’ve written; and you will give feedback to others concerning their writing and revising.

Photographs are everywhere you look: magazines, webpages, newspapers, book covers, on the walls of galleries and private homes. They are almost always accompanied by texts – captions, essays, commentaries, poems, stories, titles – that give us clues about how their producers want us to "read" them. This course will explore the many ways in which texts create contexts that we use for making sense of photographs. We will consider not only the readings encouraged by producers of photographic images, but also construct alternative readings as critical consumers of those images.

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.

Cast aside the idea that writing is simply a way to prove to your professors that you have been paying attention in lecture and doing the assigned reading! This course challenges you to think of your college writing as a way to insert your own ideas into public discourse – to participate in larger conversations among scholars. The four major writing assignments this term are designed to help you find your "scholarly voice" – encouraging you to write about topics in which you feel personally invested, so that your contribution is meaningful to you.

Our readings will provide you with rhetorical models for your own essays. Through implementing the techniques you see others use, you will learn how to use language to shape ideas and thoughts. Through the semester-long process of reading, discussing, drafting and revising – and revising again – you will learn how to refine your control of the written word, enabling you to present your ideas in a clear, sophisticated, and powerful way.

COURSE GOALS

  • To create a safe environment for group discussion and personal introspection
  • To experiment with different modes of essay writing, from the "personal" and "creative" to more traditionally "academic" forms of argumentation, analysis, and research writing.
  • To develop collaborative skills in peer writing workshops.
  • To make the abstract idea that we're writing for an audience real, by publishing two collections of our writing.

READING MATTER

  • Coursepack (Required, available at Accu-copy)
  • Ed, Diane Hacker. The Bedford Handbook. (Required, available at Shaman Drum)

No one ever finishes learning to write, so this course focuses on helping students further develop their unique potentials as writers, readers, and thinkers. By analyzing texts from a variety of academic disciplines, students will come to understand the conventions writers follow to present their ideas effectively to their chosen audiences. What rhetorical strategies are common in different disciplines – and why? How and when might we use those strategies in our own writing? For instance, what writing strategies would we call upon for a lab report, and would we use any of those strategies for a philosophical speculation, a history exam, a love letter? Throughout the term, students will work to identify the writing skills they most need to develop, and they'll invent and refine a personal style of expression that can be adapted to different audiences and purposes. Course requirements include at least 40 pages of writing, including at least 20 pages of revised, polished prose.

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.

Section 031, 035, 057 – The Outsider in Literature, Film & Popular Culture (1967 - 1972).

Prerequisites & Distribution: (4). (Introductory Composition). May not be repeated for credit.

Credits: (4).

Course Homepage: http://www-personal.umich.edu/~pcrymble/125syll.html

Did you ever stop to think about why, in recent years, we have come to develop such a peculiar and pervasive fascination with 60's and 70's culture? From film to fashion, literature, music, art, design, and everything in between, we are buying it, in more ways than one. This course is structured to allow you the time and resources necessary to engage in a meaningful exploration of this singularly unique period of American cultural history. It is crucial that we analyze the forces that influence our lives and how we live them. To simply swallow the mores and conventions of the current cultural moment without struggling to understand your own impulses and predilections, where they come from and why you embrace them, is both thoughtless and wasteful. As the Greek philosopher Socrates remarked, "an unexamined life is not worth living".

During the late 60's an alienated and often radicalized figure emerged in film and literature. This figure was an Outsider, someone who failed to fit in. The cultural and political climate of the late 60's essentially divided the American population in two. The youth, or counterculture openly questioned authority and established institutions while the establishment demanded conformity and consensus thinking. It is hardly surprising, then, that on both sides of the cultural divide, people would come to feel alienated. The Outsider appears in films, literature, and social documents that champion both the counter and consensus cultures of the day. And in just about every case, the Outsider figure embarks on a mythic quest, in keeping with, but at the same time, complicating many of the cultural myths that lie at the heart of Western Civilization and the founding of America.

It is this radical Outsider figure that we will use as a means to explore the more general and specific concerns central to the highly volatile and socially explosive culture of the late 60's and early 70's.

This writing course is, in part, informed by the needs and interests of our community partners. COURSE is a non-profit agency that tries to influence patterns of development in Washentaw County. HERO is a non-profit agency that empowers homeless people to better establish themselves within the community. Issues of homelessness, low income living, suburban sprawl, food consumption and production will command our attention, especially as they become themes for investigation and writing. Some of this writing will be designed to help our community partners in their work, and in that way students have an opportunity to effect change in the community and to write for an audience beyond each other and the teacher. This course is taught in conjunction with the Michigan Community Scholars Progam.

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

During the Cold War the discussion of competing forms of political and economic systems thrived. When the Wall between East and West Germany fell and the Soviet Union dissolved, this discussion largely came to a halt. Today considerations of alternatives are often dismissed as utopian. This dismissal suggests that such visions are both needed and feared. We will read some classic and some less familiar examples of unrestrained political vision. The aim of this course is to generate new accounts of the world and new sets of political demands as we explore these genres of writing. Students will write a series of short assignments culminating in the writing of a utopia or a manifesto.

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.

Prerequisites & Distribution: (4). (Introductory Composition). May not be repeated for credit.

First-Year Seminar

Credits: (4).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

Science fiction has always defined the 'cutting edge' of reality, by creatively exploring the limits and possibilities of societies. However, sci-fi also reproduces cultural values and social norms. In this course, we will use science fiction literature and film to explore utopian and dystopian visions of the future, and think about these futuristic visions in relation to contemporary social inequalities and social justice issues in the United States. In doing so, we will address a series of sociological questions: How does society change? Why do we conform? Why do people rebel? What kinds of alternative futures do we face? What kinds of futures can we envision?

These questions, among others, provide the vehicle to fulfill the central purpose of this course: to develop your critical reading and effective writing skills. Together we will learn these skills, including thesis-building, standards of evidence, 'voice' and audience, and the process of drafting and subsequent revision.

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.

Writing is a supremely unnatural act, and that can be a great comfort. Since writing is an acquired skill, we can always change how we write, and we can always make new discoveries about our own potential as writers. This course will introduce you to your power to change as a writer. You will come to experience the joy of learning to use words as efficient tools, the pleasure of developing a style of expression that enhances your ideas, and the satisfaction of exploring your ideas through writing about them. By analyzing mostly non-fiction texts from a variety of academic disciplines, you will come to understand the conventions writers follow to present their ideas effectively to their chosen audiences. How and when might you use their conventions in your own writing? How, for example, would a description of a summer meadow change if you revised it to become part of a contemplative essay on your emotional responses to nature, a lab report, a comparison of Romantic and Postmodern attitudes toward nature, an analysis of Annie Dillard's nature writing, or a report on the ecological effects of drilling for oil? In this course, you will have the opportunity to learn the writing skills that will permit you to address such diverse tasks and to express yourself appropriately in the very complex system of social interactions that make up the University.

Basic Course Requirements: 20-30 pages of revised, polished 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.

First-Year Seminar

Credits: (4).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

In this class, we will discuss the meaning of the word 'resistance' and understand its political implications. Principally through readings and occasionally through film, we will study the different forms political resistance takes, and ask why some countries and periods of history are more likely to experience particular forms of political resistance than others. The requirements for this class, beyond the assigned readings and regular class attendance, are a series of writing assignments, designed to build upon each other to culminate in a longer research paper on a particular moment of political resistance of interest to you.

What is "culture"?
What do we mean when we say that something or some place is "cultural"?
How are we affected by and how do we affect our cultures and the cultures around us?

In this course, we will explore as a community of writers and thinkers the myriad manifestations of culture in our worlds: how cultures are created, how they are received, what keeps them going, what erodes them. We will look at popular culture: television, film, literature, fashion trends, food, music. We will also explore culture of relationships, government, place, communication, religion, morality and weather.

We will use cultural study as a mode of inquiry as you develop, explore and (re)invent your skills as writers. If at the end of the semester you all feel more confident, more competent and braver about your writing, then this seminar will have been a success. My goal is to make writing more accessible to you, to help alleviate the pressures that come with the task by enriching your process, to inspire you to push yourselves for clarity, to make you more versatile in writing to different audiences and to encourage you to take ownership over your work.

If you love to write, let this course help you to improve.
If you despise writing, let me show you that it is possible to like it.
If you do not think you write well, let this course surprise you.

English 125 fulfils a first-year undergraduate writing requirement. Eng 125 requires that you write at least 20 pages of polished prose.

This section of 125 concentrates on the *process* of writing. With this in mind, you will write through the term, share your writing with peers, and develop your writing in stages. We will each define our own writing practices, identify our writing strategies, set realistic goals to improve or adapt our writing styles for the rigor of college, and develop writing practices that take the edge off having to write against (often overwhelming) academic pressures.

John Berger writes that "Never again will a single story be told as though it's the only one." In this class we will consider Berger's statement by looking closely at specific cultural and historical moments represented in and through literature, and at how these moments have continued to repeat themselves. As we write, we will read texts which have been revised and rewritten over the years. We will work to understand questions of subjective and objective meaning, and to better understand ourselves as writers, readers, and critics. Our own meanings will become more clear through intensive writing and revision.
