ENG 104U: Modern Grammar and Advanced Composition

(4 units)




ENG 104U is a nonfiction prose workshop for students with some experience in writing essays. We will emphasize revision and style, through peer-review sessions, in-class writing, mini-lessons, workshops and oral presentations. Throughout the course we will read nonfiction prose by diverse writers, exploring how our writing tasks may be managed through narrative, interpretive, descriptive, persuasive and expository writing. Students will also have the opportunity to hone their investigative research skills, using the resources of the city of San Francisco.
