This course develops students’ skills in essay writing through assignments based on great works of modern literature (1500-1950).

Assessment. Each semester, students write two essays using structures from classical rhetoric and create one semester project (such as a model, costume, map, or piece of art). At the conclusion of each semester, students participate in Defense Day by giving a brief presentation on a topic of their choice from the course and responding to questions.
