High School Students can Dual Enroll at MSU!
Summer 2016’s featured course: WRA 195H -Writing: Major Topics in American Thought

Course Descripton: This course will engage Dual Enrollment and MSU Honors College students in a conversation regarding their individual identities as writers. Specifically, the course will help students to identify and implement writing strategies appropriate for participation in a variety of communities, including academia. Imagine the world you want to live in. What can you as a writer do to make that world a reality? This course asks you to examine the power of readers and writers and the stories they share. This course challenges students to persuade, to inform, to learn, and to change. During this semester, they will consider how the ways we learn and communicate can shape our decisions and actions. Students will also consider the rhetoric of contemporary American writers in order to theorize how literacy has been tied to statements of belief and calls to action
in a variety of cultural communities within the United States.
