English 201 is a writing course that builds upon the skills introduced in English 101. In this course, literature is the field for the development of critical reading, critical thinking, independent research, and writing skills. Like English 101, it is required of all students at BMCC, no matter what their curriculum. Assignments move from close readings of literary texts in a variety of genres to analyses that introduce literary terms and broader contexts, culminating in independent research.

[cat image from pexels.com] This course will focus on introducing the class to the many genres of fiction in which the goal is to construct a final research paper. We will read various types of poems, plays, and one novel in order to help you construct your own well-thought out essays. Via these texts we will dive into the world of fiction and literary criticism by in-class writings, response papers, and three formal papers. Keep in mind because this is an intensive writing course, so writing will be a large part of this class. Not only will we work on honing your writing skills, we will also work on improving your grammar, syntax and vocabulary. At the end of this class you should all be excellent writers who will not only construct sophisticated research papers, but will also be able to think critically!
