Creative Thinking and Narrative

English Department

Fall Semester, 2012

       Course Objectives

In this course, you will learn how to: (1) be more creative in generating ideas for writing, (2) use concrete details in writing, (3) and write narrative stories.

Textbooks

       Zhang Zaixin, ed. English Composition: From Creative Thinking to Critical Thinking  

       1: Creative Thinking and Prewriting, FLTR, 2010.

       2: Writing with Concrete Details for a Specific Audience, FLTR, 2010.

Course Requirements and Grades

       Eight assignments will be given during the semester. Both the e-version (to be sent to the class email address above) and the hard copy (to be handed in to me at the end of the class of the due date) of each exercise and essay assignment must be submitted to receive course credit. A late paper or exercise will be scored one letter grade lower and must be turned in within one week of the due date, or it will be recorded as a zero.
