This advanced composition course examines the strategies of argumentation, exploring such elements of argument as the enthymeme, the three appeals, claim types, and fallacies. Students will learn to evaluate a wide range of arguments (including their own), considering the rhetorical strategies that make for effective argumentative performance in a given situation. The course will involve regular practice in both written and oral argument. Prerequisites: Writing 1 and junior standing. In order to preserve necessary seats for graduating seniors, each section will be enrolled through the wait list. This course does not count toward the Creative Writing Concentration.
