Nontraditional Format: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.
