Catherine Talley
Day/Time Taught: 
MWF 10:00-10:50 am
Course Number: 

This course will include intensive instruction in academic writing and research, basic principles of rhetoric and strategies for academic inquiry and argument. There will be instruction and practice in critical reading, including the generative and responsible use of print and electronic sources for academic research. We will explore literate practices across a range of academic domains, laying the foundation for further critical thinking development in college. Specifically this course will focus on marginalized subculture as it relates to our campus and to our local environment. Students will define and investigate multiples cultures that exist within their own larger culture of ASU. This class should further help you to become a better reader and writer in your career as a student as well as give you an understanding of the region of Appalachia that you did not have before entering the class.
