Section Description

Written Expression introduces students to the complex process of writing. Students will be asked to write on a variety of topics ranging from the personal and autobiographical to the objective and analytical. Emphasis will be placed on the essential phases of the writing process: exploration, drafting, revision, editing, and feedback. During the semester, students will do quite a bit of journal writing in-class and will collaborate in groups on their own formal writing. This is a hybrid course (face to face and Blackboard) with the possibility of working in two modalities (in class and remote/TEAMS). Due to COVID concerns our Thursday peer-editing groups will need to be done through Blackboard during our class time. As we enjoy the self-discovery that comes from writing, we will attempt to become more closely acquainted with the writing of one very skillful composer of the written word: J.R.R. Tolkien. We will use Tolkien’s novel The Hobbit as a springboard for discussion as well as points of departure for various writing exercises. We’ll begin with his earliest drafts in order to examine the revision process. Workshops [in class and group format] will be an important element of this class.
