Course Details

Persuasion:Writing Across Disc

This course is preparation for, among other things, writing an effective statement of facts and learning to be sensitive and critically intelligent about nuances of language and diction, and presentations of fact by others. Persuasion is an art, not a science, and writers adopt widely different strategies in order to accomplish their goals. The readings are examples of excellent writing. It is easier to see the bones of the strategy in writings which are far afield from what we ordinarily read. How does the tone of a particular piece of writing influence the reader and how the material is received? How does the writer establish herself or himself as authority?
