Course Description

This course builds on the writing principles and processes practiced in CO150. CO250 focuses on reading and writing a range of arguments appropriate for academic and general audiences. This course offers you multiple opportunities both to read and analyze varieties of argumentation and to research, write, and revise your own arguments on controversial issues. You will complete a carefully sequenced series of assignments that will include summarizing, synthesizing, evaluating, and crafting arguments, many of which will be based on library and field research.
