ENGL 102 - Writing and Rhetoric II
(3 cr) Builds on the work completed in ENGL 101 and focuses on a single, thematic rhetorical, cultural, and/or social issue. This course develops students’ fluency with a research process appropriate to various rhetorical tasks, including open, secondary research and, possibly, primary research methods such as ethnography. Students continue to write in multiple academic and public genres for different audiences, though these genres may be more complex and may require greater fluency of rhetoric and its aims. To prepare them for a world of digital communication, students are exposed to reading and/or composing multimodal texts in this course. As with ENGL 101, students will not only read the words of published writers but will also read and examine each other’s writing. Previously titled “Writing for the Arts and Humanities”. Prerequisites: C or better in ENGL 101 , or in both ENGL 101A and ENGL 101B .
