In this course,  literary texts are analyzed through close reading, prose style analysis, critical evaluation of theme/motif/imagery/symbolism, and against the backdrop of continuity of understanding in the field of study:  the historical context and the literary context of criticism. Literary and sound devices are reviewed until fluency is established. 

Students respond to assigned readings as free writing exercises.  Eventually, this informal writing is organized through rhetorical devices into formal essays.  Rhetorical strategies are studied so that students have traditional models as a foundation for their own experiments in form.  Writing is examined as a means of re-searching thoughts, as a way of discovering voice and vision, and as a means of communication, as a way of voicing original ideas and as a way of gathering in the voices of others.  Students are asked to trust in their own ability to generate an original thesis so that they may wade with confidence through secondary materials, discriminating among sources of information.

Taking a position on a text or on an issue requires that students are able to think critically, analyzing and synthesizing source information.  They are expected to generate authentic, well-substantiated arguments.  They are encouraged to express original claims, to experiment with form, and to take risks in their interpretations of text. The research piece requires that they integrate the ideas and language of other writers/scholars/specialists, students must learn to effectively synthesize information. As content dictates form, they are asked to select a rhetorical strategy to organize material for the research topic.
