FR 300 - Writing

This advanced French course, which addresses a specific theme selected at the instructor’s discretion, helps students improve their writing skills through an in-depth study and application of grammar, vocabulary, and writing techniques. Over the course of the semester, students will read and critically examine texts of various genres and watch clips of and/or full-length films. These readings and films provide a means to improve comprehension and cultural empathy, while also serving as models of good communication. Short written assignments and longer compositions allow students to apply their learned writing techniques through a multi-draft process. Students receive peer and instructor feedback on their written work to help them correct and learn from their mistakes. Required for both the major and minor. The course requires three contact hours with the professor and one contact hour of conversation with a native speaker of French each week. Designated Writing Intensive (WI). Conducted in French.
