WRI 1000: Academic Inquiry and Writing (CRN 29293) (2020-2021)

View all WRI classes

This section of WRI 1000 will examine Carolyn Forché’s What You Have Heard Is True: A Memoir of Witness and Resistance and Valeria Luiselli’s Tell Me How It Ends: An Essay in Forty Questions to study the place of the self in the text—in relation to other critical voices, visual media, and contemporary political discourse. The course 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.
