Forms of Composition – Ind. Study

This Independent Study opportunity allows students to choose three to four types of composition to submit to the instructor for feedback; the papers submitted should be final drafts and should be 3-5 pages in length. Students may choose any combination of the following: narrative (personal, focusing in on a singular, influential event), expository (descriptive, process, comparison, cause and effect), and/or argumentative/ persuasive. At least one of the papers must include the use of outside sources (research-based). All papers should adhere to MLA formatting. The instructor will provide a handout on MLA formatting before the semester begins. A writing rubric will also be given to students. Additionally, students will meet with the instructor before each writing assignment begins, and the instructor will provide guidance concerning: writing tips, reading to understand the purpose of each type of writing or to understand MLA format, etc.
