Course Description

EXPANDED
ENG 102: Advanced Expository Writing
Reading in Slow Motion: Developing advanced research and writing skills

Instructor: Dr. Cynthia Scheinberg
Class times: Thursdays, 2:30-5:00 pm

Advanced Expository Writing is a course designed to help students develop advanced research and writing skills; in spring 2016, the course has a new format. Using the method developed by Richard Miller called “reading in slow motion,” the class will explore one book for the whole semester, reading slowly, carefully, deeply and analytically in a group context. At the same time, students will develop their interests and ideas that emerge from the reading and discussions; there is no limit on which ideas or areas of interest you choose to develop, and you will can use a variety of research techniques, blogging, writing exercises and drafts, along with sharing/work-shopping your individual questions, findings, ideas and papers in class. The catch? Your final research paper for the class can be on ANY topic EXCEPT the book we have been reading together.

The class is suitable for any major, relevant for graduate students and undergraduates; ultimately, it is a class designed to build upon and expand the reading, writing and research skills you may have already developed in previous classes or departments, but now want to take to the next, more advanced and individualized level.
