The course concentrates on the history of contemporary composition theory and the key issues fundamental to the development of the discipline. Research, writing, and reading requirements will be more rigorous than the undergraduate Composition Theory course with each graduate student being required to gain expert knowledge of one major theorist in the field for a major research paper, work on a semester long project to produce an original curriculum design for writing intensive courses. Prerequisite: Graduate status.
