ENG-2940: Style and Argument

This course expands the notion of argument beyond commonly held conceptions of conflict between competing points of view and suggests a wide variety of discourses and sites - from text to television, verse to video - that can be understood as practices of argument. The course covers the distinction between argument and opinion, encouraging a move from subjective writer-centered to effective reader-centered writing strategies. It also focuses on the identification, development, and evaluation of arguments and supportive evidence. The ENG 294 course requires that the student work with a tutor in the writing center in addition to attending in the class.
