Fulfills CCR2 Requirement for H&SS and a Designated Writing Course for other colleges. This course is intended for international and American students who speak English as a second language. The class focuses on the American experience as told from multicultural perspectives in the form of essays, poetry, fiction, and film. Students will consider how these experiences are affected by issues of ethnicity and race, sex, and gender, health and illness, class, religion, and education. Emphasis will be placed on helping students develop strategies for advancing oral and written interpretations of texts through various modes of argumentation, including summary, synthesis, and analysis. The course encourages students to examine their responses to the selected texts as a means of exploring their own identities within American culture and discovering how their own individual histories and cultural backgrounds influence the meanings they make.
