Student Learning Outcomes

  • demonstrate introductory ability to exercise self-criticism and to offer insightful, supportive, and productive criticism to others;
  • gain introductory, working knowledge of formal and technical aspects of foundational literary works from the tradition and selected contemporary works in the genres. (This introductory knowledge will be evident both in students' critical responses and in students' own creative works.)
