Distance Ed. (07/06-08/09) (Professor Tanner)

English 306 is designed for advance business students and Arts and Sciences students (juniors and seniors) anticipating careers in law, business, or government.  This course assumes that the better prepared you are to communicate effectively and persuasively using customary business forms, the more readily will you achieve your personal goals.  We will compose and present work in modes, both written and visual, expected in business and government.  We will also practice composing processes, research relevant business questions, and practice professional problem-solving.  As an integral part of these activities, we will examine the rhetorical nature of professional discourse in addressing diverse audiences, sometimes with multiple purposes.

2370 ENGL 491-20 INt Theory New Crit-Present: 
M-F (05/31-07/05) 9:40am-11:10am HM103 (Professor Hadley)

Using Tyson’s Critical Theory Today and a number of shorter primary and secondary essays, this course will introduce students to recent and contemporary theories of interpretation. For the purposes of the course, theoretical concepts and approaches introduced will be explored through the interpretation and evaluation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Great Gatsby. Class sessions will be conducted seminar-style, and will be structured around interrogation and discussion. Course objectives will be for students 1.) to learn to recognize theoretical terms, concepts and approaches, and 2.) to gain facility in applying these approaches in their own reading and thinking.


2485 ENGL 506-20 Teaching of Writing – WR:CUE: 
M-F (05/31-07/05) 11:20am-12:50pm HM209 (Professor Turner)

English 506 is an introduction to the theory and practices that inform the teaching of writing. Although we’ll initially look at theories of what writing (and the teaching of writing) is, we’ll also look at how theory governs pedagogical practice, and vice versa. Toward those ends, we’ll examine both the pedagogical approaches that govern the teaching of writing and the various practical activities—curriculum design, assignment design and sequencing, classroom activities and management, formative and summative assessment—we might use to ground and elaborate those approaches in the classroom.

3579 ENGL 595-30 Science and Religion in the Seventeenth Century 
M-F (07/06-08/09) HM210 (Professor Stanev)

This course will examine a number of literary reflections of the two most prominent impulses behind the turbulent Stuart, Commonwealth, and Restoration years in England—scientific exploration and religious thought. We will not only study their separate impact upon the early modern imagination and the political and social events of the seventeenth century, but also consider ways in which they collided in the writings of seminal early modern authors, such as Marlowe, Jonson, Donne, and Milton. We will further read and discuss a wide array of plays, utopias, poems, scientific and medical tracts, witchcraft narratives, and interpretative treatments of religious doctrine. The learning outcomes of this class will be geared towards: 1) exploring the significance of major philosophical, scientific, and theological discoveries in early modern writings and their impact upon the course of social, economic, spiritual, and political events in the seventeenth century; 2) recognizing the complexity of change in the literary imagination of the British Isles in the Jacobean, Caroline, Interregnum, and Restoration periods; 3) placing some of the most widely acclaimed early modern masters of the pen among the writings and ideas of their contemporaries, and tracing the sources, as well as disparate interpretations, of those ideas among the voices of their less known contemporaries (such as Godwin, Cavendish). The learning outcomes will be assessed through a longer research paper, as well as class discussion.
