English 2089 (Intermediate Composition): Writing about Writing

English 2089 (Intermediate Composition) reinforces what students learn in first-year Composition, introduces higher-level learning about writing and reading, and focuses students’ attention on how meaning is made, understood and communicated across and within discourse communities. The course emphasizes critical reading and writing, advanced research and argumentative skills, and rhetorical sensitivity to differences in academic, professional, and/or public writing.
