From the Instructor:
Hello! Welcome to our section of Writing 122! We'll be focusing on argument and argumentation, beginning from the premise that everything is an argument. We'll look at advertising and its use of rhetorical tools before beginning to craft arguments based on classic academic structures. The class is a lot of fun, and the class is structured to provide you with the tools to be successful in future academic work as well as persuade people in the real world.
Course Specific Requirements:
We will be using Andrea Lunsford and Paul Ruskiewicz's book _Everything's An Argument_ in the 7th edition, without the readings. It will be available through the PCC Southeast bookstore.
