The craft and technique of creative writing and/or theories of creative writing. Topics vary by semester. Consult the Schedule of Classes for more information.
At the end of the course students should be able to: 1. identify the creative methods used by writers past and present to compose works of fiction, poetry, non-fiction, and/or drama and to identify the critical theoretical discourses from which these methods derive. 2. analyze literary texts through the lens of aesthetics, particularly compositional practices and writing styles. 3. connect compositional practices and writing styles to specific historical lineages. 4. achieve proficiency in techniques of creative writing that not only improve one’s skills as a writer but also as a critical reader and thinker.

It is the only course that will deal with craft and technique exclusively in creative writing.

A revised syllabus with learning goals that indicate that the course is a "critical thinking" course is attached, along with assignments assessing the students' progress in those goals. An assessment report is also attached.

Rollback: In order to approve the course for GPAC, we need to see a model syllabus with learning goals that will cover all sections of the course in the future. We also need to see learning goals that indicate that the course is a "critical thinking" course, we need sample assignments that will assess the students' progress in those goals, and we need an assessment plan from the department. If this is to be more like a topics course, then it is best not to burden it with the GPAC designation.

Rollback: syllabus is missing a full schedule of classes and required religious holiday, academic integrity, and support outside the classroom statements.

I am approving, but please note that the syllabus should be uploaded as ONE document, just like the syllabus you would upload to Blackboard or distribute to the students, rather than separate bits.
