Rhetoric

  • CGS RH 101: Rhetoric I: English Composition: Argument and Critical Thinking
    Begins with critical reading, writing, and thinking strategies. Students learn the convention of the expository essay and how to meet its demands by developing a thesis, organizing an argument, and supporting claims with reasoning and evidence. Students also receive instruction in grammar, style, and document design. Through class discussion and by working on assignments, students explore connections between readings assigned in Rhetoric and their readings in other courses.
  • CGS RH 102: Rhetoric II: English Composition and Research
    Focuses on research while further developing students' expository writing skills. Students learn how to use electronic and traditional research tools, how to select and weigh evidence and integrate sources into an argument, and how to use standard scholarly conventions to document their research.
