As a Lit major, I write at least one paper a week. To my fellow English majors this might not seem too abnormal, however the people in my peer editing group were appalled by this statement. Being that Uses of Literacy is mainly a composition course, I would love to hear the outsiders take on the comp. requirement, and writing intensive courses, in general. Did you hate it as much as you thought you would? Do you agree with Pitt’s mandatory writing requirements? Would you take another comp course if you were given the chance?
Feel free to speak your mind. This is a broad question about Comp. courses in general, not about Professor Vee, or about our class in particular! I am interested in being a High school English teacher, which is why I am excited to hear how it feels to have mandatory writing, so open up! You might even help some of my future students that despise writing.
