ENGL 1A: Critical Thinking & Writing (Jalal)


CTW 1: World Masterpieces

This sequence of Critical Thinking & Writing is an introduction to academic rhetorical analysis and writing skills through an exploration of unique and varying perspectives on world masterpieces. 

This is a reading- and writing-intensive course and we will be learning the foundational rules and mechanisms of composition while actively reading and observing examples of composed texts. We will have weekly readings and in-class activities pertaining to the many lessons of this course. In addition to the reading and writing assignments, students may collaborate on group work that furthers our understanding of the core curriculum.
