WRI 1000: Academic Inquiry and Writing (CRN 29292) (2020-2021)

View all WRI classes

This section of WRI 1000 will study and compose a range of reviews and other forms of criticism in the arts—particularly movies and music. 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.
