WRI 1000: Academic Inquiry and Writing Seminar (2023-2024)

View all WRI classes

While the foundations of WRI 1000 class are universal, each class takes a different thematic focus. The focus of this section will be on the question: what history have you been taught? Who gets to re-member the past? We will be watching, analyzing, and writing on the Middle East, focusing on films made by Israelis, Palestinians, Middle Eastern Christians. This course presses you to think about what history you have been taught, what collective memories you hold, and in terms of critical thinking, what stories are still missing. WRI 1000 provides first-year college students an introduction to academic inquiry. Its central purpose is to immerse students in the types of reading, writing, and critical thinking required by their new community – the university. Key elements of the course include understanding the rhetorical and cultural contexts that impact reading, writing, and learning; practicing the critical reading of academic texts; learning to develop insightful lines of inquiry and complex claims; and developing skill in the processes and conventions that lead to successful academic writing.
