      • ENGL 3371-001 ADVANCED EXPOSITION

        According to the UTA catalog, English 3371 is “An Advanced Writing course emphasizing writing that explains, demonstrates, or explores a subject.  Attention given to audience, invention, style (coherence, unity, clarity), and to the revision process.”

                        The goal of English 3371 is to help students become better writers with the ability to adjust their writings to appeal to specific audiences.  A successful writer uses different rhetoric depending on the audience she/he wishes to address.  You will write both to me and to your fellow classmates who will also evaluate what you have created.  The goal of expository writing in this class will be to inform rather than to convince a reader of the efficacy of your position.
