ENG 112 - Composition II
English 112 is the second semester of the year-long College Composition course. Students will continue to develop their writing skills by creating and developing ideas supported by evidence, revising and editing their texts, and honing their research skills. ENG 112 students also will continue learning how to write research papers, handling both primary and secondary sources in a more complex and sophisticated fashion than for their ENG 111 research paper. ENG 112 will introduce students to the formal study of a variety of primary texts (mainly literary and historical sources) and secondary texts (scholarly books and articles).
In this class, the goals of ENG 112 will be accomplished by looking at texts related to the Ancient Greeks. Students will read a range of books and articles by scholars who study the Greeks in addition to documents and literature written by the Greeks themselves. The readings will be bound together by this theme, but this is not a history course, so students will not be tested on content. Rather, they will practice their critical reading and writing skills on the texts mentioned above, and they will be evaluated on those reading and writing skills.
