EN 825 Composition Theory and the Teaching of Writing (Spring: 3)
Department Permission required
This course is designed to prepare graduate students to teach first-year
college writing courses; to introduce students to central issues, problems
and theories in composition studies; and to examine ways in which contemporary
critical theories (including feminism, psychoanalysis, cultural studies,
and critical pedagogy) have influenced the teaching and study of composition.
Requirements will include a theoretically-informed analysis of a student
essay; a piece of creative nonfiction and an accompanying description of
the process used to produce it; an annotated syllabus for a first-year college
course; and a week of student teaching in an FWS classroom.
