In this section of ENG 101 with ESL support, you will explore and analyze arguments about contemporary issues in American society by looking at politics, media, music, literature, and public landscapes. You will aim to improve your writing and communication skills, as you construct arguments, reflect upon your own arguments, and respond to other people’s arguments. Using different tools and genres to address – and contribute to – current conversations, you will engage with concerns and ideas that affect people in the United States today. You will connect your own stories to ongoing debates. We will walk through several stages in this class. Each of the main assignments will be embedded in a collection of exercises and readings that relate to the assignment's topic (and genre).

Please note that enrollment in this course is by permission only. Please contact Jane O'Connor (jcoconn@emory.edu) for registration information.
