|ENC 3254: Writing in Elementary Education|
Major Class Links
This course is designed to better acquaint elementary education majors with the types of writing they will teach and engage in as professionals. We will develop and employ strategies for narrative, expository, and persuasive texts. In addition, we will develop more general strategies for inventing, arranging, and refining the style of our texts. Though a couple of the assignments will ask you to reflect on your views about teaching writing, most will ask you to actually write creative and professional texts for specific audiences and purposes. Finally, this class will approach writing as a rhetorically-driven process, and thus will introduce you to a limited amount of rhetorical theory.
You are expected to be familiar and fluent with the conventions of standard written English. Those needing extra help with such conventions should also purchase a writing handbook and be prepared to visit the Writing Center.
