Acting (good acting!) is more than reciting and interpreting a script. Starting with the character you are playing right now we will generate writing skills and acting skills simultaneously. Good writing is more than just putting words on the page. It is the process of critical reading, idea generation, rhetorical context, writing and revision too. Working with Dodie Montgomery in Theater 120, we will learn the fundamentals of acting and use those skills to bring literature to life. Using that experience in English 101, we will learn the foundations of college writing and analytic reading as we explore the writing process in ways that might surprise you (and might please you, too!).
