Nontraditional Format:This course will involve field experience in parallel with lecture experience, including seminars, topical discussions, field modules, and faculty from host institutions. Students will have two hours of instructional field experience for every equivalent one hour of classroom lecture; thus a 3-credit course will be comprised of approximately 22.5 lecture hours and 45 field hours. This version of the course will be taught as writing intensive, which means that the course will include substantial and ongoing writing assignments that a) relate clearly to course learning; b) teach the communication values of a discipline—for example, its practices of argument, evidence, credibility, and format; and c) prepare students for further writing in their academic work, in graduate school, and in professional life. The written assignments will result in a significant and diverse body of written work (the equivalent of 6000 words or 25 pages) and the instructor (and/or the teaching assistant assigned to the course) will be closely involved in student writing, providing opportunities for feedback and substantive revision.
