Core I: Theories and Techniques for Writers

Core I offers an in-depth examination of theories of composing, focusing on the interdisciplinary nature of writing through inquiry into rhetorical elements common to all writers, for example, genre, tone, audience, point of view, and voice. It also considers basic principles and techniques of writing, including narration, dialogue, exposition and style. Students will examine many genres of writing and compare and contrast the application of techniques to the differing genres.
