Student Essays, Written This Semester

last update: December 6, 2016


So this class was really interesting, this semester.  Twelve honors composition students and I explored this huge, intractable, sometimes overwhelming, and always fascinating topic -- global warming.  I was so impressed with some of the writing that I thought it would be a good idea to make it widely available, here on this website, with the student/ authors' permissions.
