CRW 198 FIRST YEAR SIGNATURE COURSE-I Have Something to Tell You: The Spoken Word: Spoken word poems are meant for a crowd. Performance poetry (spoken word and slam) became popular in the United States in the 1980s, and this genre of writing and speaking emphasizes word choice, rhythm, repetition, and storytelling to address issues related to social justice.

 This course will introduce you to contemporary spoken word poems and performers as well as the social problems they address in their writing: sexism, civil rights, poverty, body image, LGBTQ+ rights, rape culture, mental illness, religious freedom, and more. You will also compose, workshop, and perform your own spoken word poem.

CRW 205 POETRY WRITING: INTRODUCTORY-In this introductory level poetry workshop, students will begin to understand the nature of poetry by reading a variety of work written by contemporary poets, as well as one full single-author book of poetry. Students will also write, revise, and critique a number of poems throughout the semester. A final portfolio including new and revised poems will be submitted at the end of the semester.

ENG 102 COMPOSTION II-Practice in college level writing, includes preparation of a research paper.
