Development of writing skills: sentence strategies and paragraph structures. Expository, critical, and persuasive essay techniques based on analysis of selected readings. For Educational Opportunity Program students only, upon recommendation by the Office of Minority Affairs.
English 110 is the second in a two-quarter composition sequence. Students will continue developing academic writing skills in preparation for their time at university and beyond.
Our readings will focus on the figure of the monster, and specifically the monster that eats human flesh. We will discuss the use of the monstrous figure in historical and contemporary texts, as well as its broader implications in society.
Fair Warning: as you might expect from the topic, some of our readings will be on the gory side. Students who are sensitive to such things may wish to consider a different section.
Readings may include: Neil Gaiman Kathe Koja H. P. Lovecraft Judith Halberstam H. L. Malchow
