WRTG 328W - Writing and Style [GEWI]
What is “style” and how does it impact the rhetorical effectiveness of writing? In this writing intensive course, students study different definitions and assumptions of style as it relates to writing and rhetoric; how style has changed over time; how styles change based on genre, purpose, and media; and the implications of style in writing processes.
Projects include stylistic/rhetorical analysis of a variety of texts (print, advertisements, videos, websites, etc.), a comparison of different style guides and writing advice texts, and an analysis of revision practices.
