WRI 1100: Disciplinary Research&Wrtg Sem (47408) (2019-2020)

View all WRI classes

This section of WRI 1100, offered by a Theatre professor, teaches academic research and writing in the humanities. Students will focus on the writing necessary for all Theatre Directors: how to study a playscript, research a playwright and previous productions, and how to craft a Production Vision Statement. 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.
