RHE 306: Rhetoric and Composition (Fall 2004)
Rhetoric 306 (Rhetoric and Composition) is an introductory writing course that helps students to develop their writing, critical reading, and critical thinking skills. The course is built around a text selected by the Division and Rhetoric and Writing(DRW). The DRW calls this program the First-Year forum, and it's goal is to get students to "read, discuss, and write about a book that examined an important cultural issue" (See "A Brief History of RHE 306"). The text for the 2004-5 school year was Barry Glassner's The Culture of Fear. Each year, the DRW hopes to foster a community discussion about a particular topic.
