Syllabus Description:

English 298B (MW 1:00-2:20 pm) is a graded 5-credit composition course which is linked to, but designed and graded separately from, Prof. Leilani Nishime's Communication 200.   You may use English 298 toward either the “C” or “W” requirement, whichever you need.

English 298B assignments are based on Communication 200 readings and concepts.  This small workshop-style class will give you an opportunity to develop your skill and confidence to write and conduct research in the discipline of Communication, to curate and present documents and images in support of an argument, to collaborate with classmates on co-authored documents, and to deepen your understanding of reading and lecture materials from Communication 200.   Your major projects will be shared in draft form for peer and instructor feedback before final versions are due, and you will have instruction in the library research necessary for these projects.

There are no required textbooks, no prerequisites, and no add codes required for English 298B.  Any student enrolled in Communication 200 is eligible and welcome.
