Course Description

Per USF: This course emphasizes argument, research, and style. Through its emphasis on thinking rhetorically, providing evidence for assertions, creative thinking, and writing as a process, this course will prepare you for argument and research-based writing in academic settings. Students will compose multiple drafts, respond to peers' drafts, sharpen their   research skills, and improve their   revising and editing skills. Students will complete numerous style exercises to sharpen their editorial skills and offer oral presentations on stylistic issues.   In terms of thematic issues, this course engages students in writing as social action then invites students to think rhetorically about some of the "perspectives" of USF's General Education Plan .   Note: This is a Gordon Rule course, so all students must write at least 6000 words over the course of the semester.
