Women Authors – Ind. Study
In many traditional literature classes, women authors are squeezed in where they can be and are, therefore, a bit neglected in study. In this independent study opportunity, students will choose pieces from women authors to read and analyze. Thought should be given to social and historical context, author biography, use of literary devices, etc. Pieces to be read will need to be approved by the instructor before the semester begins, and guidance in selection can be given if needed. Students should know how to write a standard 5 paragraph essay in MLA format as 3 papers will be required. If a student has advanced writing ability, research papers or longer papers can be incorporated. Students will meet with the instructor before a paper is started.
