ENGL 1079 Literary Forms for English Language Learners (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

This course, offered in the spring, is part of a year-long sequence of English language support and follows the First Year Writing Seminar offered in fall. ENGL 1079 may be taken in place of ENGL 1080 and fulfills BC’s literature core requirement. Similar to ENGL 1080, students explore a variety of literary genres including fiction, poetry, and drama with an emphasis on post-1900 American literature to enhance the development of diction and syntax that is contemporary and idiomatic. Support for students from linguistically diverse backgrounds in speaking, reading, and writing is an important component of the course.
