    The purpose of this course is to develop an appreciation and understanding of a wide variety of World Literature and texts, to practice and improve the level of expression in our own writing, and to cultivate critical and creative thinking as we discuss and write. The course will also include creative projects as well as analysis, research, and synthesis in a variety of genres. We will investigate English syntax and grammar, and sharpen these understandings as we write. If you ever feel lost or falling behind, come talk to me - I am happy to speak to you about your confusion or desperation, both of which are sometimes necessary steps in learning.
