Professional Report Writing


The purpose of English 3365 is to prepare you for writing as a professional person. It focuses on gathering information and presenting it to specific audiences. The assignments include a library/internet guide, an annotated bibliography, a recommendation report, a progress report, a proposal, and an oral report. You will learn uses, purposes, conventions, and structures for the reports and the proposal. You will also learn strategies for producing such documents, including analyzing purpose, gathering data, managing time, and revising. You will also develop your options, including visual and oral presentation and formatting verbal texts, for presenting information. You will review grammar and principles of effective style. All of your work will be on topics of your choosing, preferably related to your major or intended career.

English 3388
Section 001,002

Film Genres: Avant-Garde, Documentary, and Narrative
The Classical Hollywood Style

Mike Schoenecke

For 1st Summer 2009, English 3388 will study award-winning Hollywood films so that we can gain an understanding of what makes these films great and how these films communicate. By learning how the selected films communicate, we will gain a better understanding of how all films communicate. We will lay out contemporary Hollywood�s most important and typical narrative strategies (which are in most respects the same as those in use during the 1930s) and then examine recent films to show how those strategies are used in practice. To accomplish these tasks, we will consider film language, and, when appropriate, the cultural and social milieu. We want to discover why Americans spent more than $32.8 billion on movies last year. That�s a lot of money just to hold hands, drink sodas, and eat popcorn and candy in the dark!
