Brief Description of Course: Using a combination of in-class and take-home assignments, this course will help students from diverse disciplines develop their ability to think critically and write clearly. The course will give particular emphasis to the writing process, with a series of assignments designed to guide students from brainstorming, outlining, and structuring through composition, revision and proofreading to the production of a polished final draft. This course will involve regular writing assignments in which the rhetorical tools and strategies covered in-class will be put into practice. The format of the course will be collaborative and highly participatory, rather than lecture-based.
