WRI 1100: STEM Research & Writing Seminar (2022-2023)

View all WRI classes

This section of WRI 1100, offered by a chemistry professor, teaches academic research and writing in the arts and sciences. The colors of paint in works of art can be made and taken apart with science. We will learn how old paintings can be analyzed with recent scientific techniques, and make our own pigments in lab for use in a final art project. The course continues the academic inquiry and writing skills of WRI 1000 by incorporating the elements and standards of college-level research and writing within a disciplinary context. Students use writing throughout the term as a tool to investigate and communicate information and ideas and to approach and answer complex questions. Key elements include learning to develop good research questions and lines of inquiry; writing in appropriate disciplinary genres; understanding the proper use of primary and secondary sources; evaluating, summarizing, analyzing, and synthesizing research; revising writing so as to develop and deepen ideas; and producing a culminating paper or project.
