prompts, you will produce a full-length short story that will be shared with your peers and discussed in workshop. You will then be expected to use the feedback you received to revise and polish this ﬁrst draft, as well as to write an informal, reﬂexive note about your revision process. Pedagogical Method : By the end of the course, the student is expected to : 1°) Apply multiple theories, concepts, and techniques for creating and evaluating written communication. Students receive instruction on craft elements employed by ﬁction writers, including plot, point of view, characterization, dialogue, and setting. They read short stories with an eye to analyzing the way each element works in ﬁction, and practice these techniques using low-stakes writing exercises and prompts. They prepare discussion questions on the readings that focus on issues of craft. Instructor assesses informal writing exercises, a complete short story and revision of that story, and written responses to peers' writing. Students bring discussion questions on each reading and instructor gives a midterm that asks them to deﬁne and apply literary concepts. 2°) Write effectively for diverse audiences within a speciﬁc area or discipline using appropriate standards and conventions. Students reﬂect on literary ﬁction as distinguished from genre or formulaic ﬁction, and receive instruction on the standards and conventions of literary ﬁction, including complexity of characterization, consistency of point of view, and strong grasp of narrative structure. Instructor assesses students' exercises and short stories based on their alignment with basic standards and conventions of literary ﬁction. 3°) Apply critical thinking to writing and writing process, including revision. Students analyze and discuss assigned stories as practice for responding critically to each other's work. Peer responses focus on constructive suggestions for revision. The instructor meets with each student to discuss revision strategies. Students write reﬂections on the revision process that accompany the ﬁnal draft. Instructor assesses both oral and written responses to peers' workshopped stories. Instructor assesses students' revised stories and their self-reﬂections.
