4. Course Description:

Honors Composition II is a writing-intensive course that aims to teach students how to write in a professional and public capacity through frequent writing experiences similar to the writing which they are likely to encounter in community or work situations. Students will compose rhetorically situated pieces including a research proposal, annotated bibliography, research report, e-documents, source reviews, and professional correspondence.  Application will extend beyond the college classroom, reflecting common forms of civic engagement that exist in diverse and pluralistic societies.  Students will learn the foundational elements of argumentation and will develop researching, critical thinking, and collaborative writing strategies as they draft and revise multiple documents for multiple audiences.  The capstone project for the course requires students to showcase their research in a public forum.
