EDRE 510 : Composition: Process and Application

The course helps students understand the principles of composition, with special emphasis on modal organization, argumentation, and literary analysis, focusing on how best to help K-12 students improve their writing skills. We discuss theories of composition, including the processes of writing, such as heuristic devices, writing, and editing. Students learn to recognize and mark common errors in grammar and usage. Students will also improve their own writing skills by writing mode-based essays (including literary analysis), poems, and a short story.
