Description

WRT 105 creates a small collaborative community that fosters each member’s development—as critical thinkers, readers and, of course, writers.

You and your group will explore various genres of academic writing and read texts from across the disciplines on select topics, such as the role of public spaces or the politics of cultural dissent. You’ll learn concrete analytical and rhetorical writing strategies; how to develop effective claims and original insights of your own; and how to communicate those ideas to diverse audiences.

Expect to be challenged to become a more self-directed and reflective reader, thinker, and writer!
