One Week


Composition 102 students today will be introduced to the first major assignment of the term, the scene description; I really like this project as an introduction to the class because it is not argument based but it does require close, precise description, concision, and a few other key elements designed to introduce students to writing analytically about literature and film. This term, I’m adding a new component to the assignment–students can use no instances of the verb “to be.” We’ll see how this works; if it does, I think students will be in an excellent position to recognize new and better ways to improve their writing later in the term.
