First Year Composition at UIUC: Rhet 105

RHET 105: Writing and Research is one of UIUC’s first year composition options. It is an introduction in research-based writing and the construction of academic, argumentative essays that use primary and secondary sources as evidence.

I taught three sections of it between fall 2015 and fall 2016. My approach was informed by UIUC’s Rhetoric program as well as my prior experience teaching first- and second- year composition courses at San Francisco State University as a grad student and lecturer.
