RHW 102 - First Year Seminar in Writing (Foundations F1a)


4-0-4

This course is organized around a common theme chosen by the English faculty, and is designed to engage students in the thinking-to-writing model of writing. To prepare students for the diverse modes of critical research and inquiry prevalent in an academic community, course readings and writing assignments introduce students to writing conventions of various expository forms and genre. The course will also address the rhetorical concepts of persona, ethos, pathos, argument structure, counter-argument, and logical fallacy. Students enrolled in this class are expected to meet with their instructors outside of class time. This course is required for all first-year and transfer students with fewer than 30 credits, and all transfer students who have not earned transfer credit for a comparable course. Students are expected to enroll in this course by their second term at Berry. A grade of C- or better is required to pass out of this course. Matriculated Berry students may not transfer in credit from another institution for this this course.
