Students work closely with their peers and the instructor to develop their written prose. Readings cover a variety of different genres and academic disciplines.Course Description for Section 051 | Everyday life is where we spend most of our time, but many of the books, movies, and TV shows we consume are dedicated to helping us escape it. The words we use to describe everyday things are usually neutral or negative: common, humdrum, run-of-the-mill, and, in a word, boring. Why? In this class, we will ask ourselves whether everyday life really is boring and humdrum. What can we learn if we pay attention to everyday life instead of trying to escape it? Our writing and class discussions will be based on readings of literature, history, sociology, and anthropology, which will allow us to critique and re-evaluate everyday living. Assignments will include four short skill-building assignments, three formal papers, and an in-depth revision, for a total of about 30 pages of polished writing.
