Between Writers and Readers: Giving Voice to Ideas focuses on specific genres to help students understand how authors’ perceptions of the world drive them to convey their understanding of the human experience. The course includes four units: Stories of the Individual-Memoir and Coming-of-Age Stories; Stories in the Oral Tradition-Drama and Epic Poetry; Stories in the World-Historical and Political Literature; and Stories of Other Worlds-Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Imaginative Literature. Students compose in different modes for different purposes, with opportunities to practice composing in the genres they study.
