About the Course
WR 100 and WR 150 make up a two-semester sequence of writing courses required of most Boston University undergraduates. Rather, they are designed to help all students acquire skills and habits of mind essential both to their academic success and to their future personal, professional, and civic lives. WR 100 and WR 150 are taught as small, topic-based seminars. Different sections of these courses address a range of different topics. Students in this section of WR100 will examine both the drama of Shakespeare’s time and later works that address or revise the earlier plays. In addition, students will be reading historical, critical, and theoretical resources. Through their examination and comparison of these texts, students will learn to write critically about the ideas and ideologies that have been passed down through literary tradition. The course will provide students with the language and skills they will need to articulate their concerns about the social changes made evident in these works.
