WR 122_H - Argument, Research and Multimodal Composition-Honors

4 Credit(s)

While continuing the concerns of WR 121, WR 122 focuses on persuasion and argument supported by external research, including the processes of finding and evaluating sources, citing, documenting, and integrating source material into the student’s own text. Both subjects –argument and research– are presented in the context of critical reading and the writing. This honors class delves deeper into course topics and requires a high level of student motivation; the pace may be faster than non-honors courses. See lanecc.edu/honors for information. Students cannot receive credit for both WR 122_H and WR 122.

Prerequisite: WR 121  or WR 121_H
