ENGL 122 Foundation English 2 (Writing and Imaginative Literature)


English 122 is a foundation course in literature that is meant to reinforce and build on the knowledge and skills acquired in ENGL 121. It consists of practice in reading and writing about imaginative literature with a view to broadening the extent and variety of students’ thinking and writing. Students will read and write about a variety of literary texts using the argumentative writing skills they learned in English 121 and some critical perspectives that they will learn in this course. These exercises will awaken students to the uses of language in literature, the structure of texts, the ideas that shape our culture, and the interrelationship between ideas and language. In short, this course will help students learn to think critically and creatively about literature and to express those thoughts clearly.
