HIGH ENG 1A / Online

This course is a survey of different genres with a focus on a variety of authors from around the globe. It is designed not only to introduce students to a medley of viewpoints but also to instill productive and creative questioning of the choices made by characters and presented by authors. 

We will read a wide variety of works, including short stories, fictional novels, poetry, creative nonfiction and a play. In particular, we will stress how the historical texts wrestle with matters that are still relevant today and that must be read with a critical yet open mind.
