ENGL 20800 Introduction to Writing and Rhetoric

GE-Communication Interested in learning how to win an argument? Want to know the best ways to effectively convey your own ideas, while anticipating what others will say? This course will build on what you learned in ENGL 17000 and go into more detail about not only how to make a good argument, but why it works. You’ll get a chance to learn more about ideas and theories about persuasion and the practice of making a convincing argument, and we’ll participate in class debates, write a variety of texts, and give speeches. You’ll be better prepared for making (and winning) arguments in your daily life and in future classes.
