English 101 Section A15. Writing About Literature and the Everyday
Although most of us take it for granted, literature—poetry, fiction, drama especially—surrounds everyday and is just about everywhere we look. If you see it, too, for example, on t-shirts, adapted into film, alluded to in speeches and on the nightly news, and, of course on FB and twitter, then this section of 101 might be for you. Through lectures, class discussions of course readings, research and related writing assignments, and small group projects, students will pose critical questions and then craft informed answers about these genres of literature and the ways that the function in everyday life.
