WRI 1000: Academic Inquiry and Writing Seminar (10810) (2020-2021)

View all WRI classes

This section of WRI 1000 will examine works by Claudia Rankine, Valeria Luiselli, and Cathy Park Hong 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.
