French 101: Persuasive Writing

Instructor: Kimberly Jansma

In FR101, students will work on writing informative, analytical and persuasive texts in French on topics of interest. They’ll learn how to engage the reader, defend a thesis, analyze, concede and conclude. In order to develop a clear, logical writing style, students will work on rhetorical expressions such as cause and effect, comparison and concession. They will begin each new topic with a close reading and class discussion of both contemporary and classical writing paying careful attention to style and vocabulary. Taught in French.
