RPTM 120 will provide students with an introduction to how recreation, play and leisure activities impact the health of individuals and communities. Our leisure and recreation activities are critical factors in our mental and physical well-being, a way we bounce back from life's challenges, a fundamental part of our quality of life. Communities come together around special events, parks, sports and shared experiences indoors and outdoors. We will examine historically and in current society how people make leisure part of their busy lives and enhance their personal health and community life.
Rhetoric and Composition (ENGL15) an intensive, rhetorically based experience in reading and writing that will prepare you both to understand the communications that surround you and to succeed in your own communication efforts. Thus, in this course, we will focus specifically on analyzing verbal and visual texts (our reading) as well as on producing such texts (our writing), always in terms of rhetorical principles. ENGL 15 fulfills 3 credits of the writing and speaking requirement for general education.
