English 116: Freshman Seminar--Writing & Photography
Leahy, Anna; Rindge, Deborah
Composition Studies, v32 n2 p109-130 Fall 2004
English 116: Freshman Seminar is, according to the college catalog, the "gateway course for North Central College's integrative curriculum. [It f]ocuses on writing, reading, and critical thinking related to a specific area of inquiry [and is t]eam-taught by faculty from English and another department. Topics vary, but emphasis is on rhetoric and interdisciplinary perspectives. [An i]ntensive research component [is required]." As the gateway course, English 116 introduces students to college-level expectations in general; to thoughtful, critical reading and writing skills; and to research. The course requires that students complete three or four essay assignments and that they participate in two library instruction sessions. Our section, entitled "Writing and Photography," explores intersections between the written word and the visual art of photography and is taught by a creative writer (Anna Leahy) and an art historian (Debora Rindge).
