Is self-defense a reasonable claim when a shipwreck victim kills and eats a fellow unlucky passenger? Is a burrito a sandwich? Do you have to disclose that your home is haunted before you sell it?
These are some of the many bizarre legal cases we'll look at while reading selections from How Would You Rule? by Daniel Park.
Along the way, we'll practice foundational composition skills by writing four multi-draft essays in a variety of forms and topics.
At the same time, we'll be discussing ethics, logic, and the law.
Gain Key Academic Writing Foundations
Students will learn foundational academic writing skills including brainstorming, organization, revision, formatting, and proofreading.
Guided Class Flexibility
This is a guided class, which means there are no live meetings, but there is student-teacher interaction and weekly due dates for assignments. This format works well for students who don’t enjoy live, on-camera sessions or who have unpredictable weekly schedules.
Students can interact with the instructor and each other via our class Discord channel.
Practice Writing as a Process
Most importantly, students will compose four multi-draft papers with individual video feedback on rough drafts and the opportunity to revise a final draft.
