An introduction to the study of texts, which may include short stories, essays, letters, novels, poems, films, television shows, commercials, videos, and more. Our focus will be on reading, critical analysis, and writing. You will learn how to do close readings and critical analysis, and you will be encouraged to find ways to write engaging pieces about those stories, videos, and other texts you read and watch. Through this class you will, hopefully, become a better reader and writer.
