WRTG 120 - Academic Writing
Devoted to writing as a practice, craft, and skill, Academic Writing is for students who have not fulfilled their first-year writing requirement through the Drew Seminar, and those who completed the seminar but want to continue to strengthen their writing skills. The assignments in this course will engage students in an intensive study of scholarly communication. From scrutinizing how arguments are constructed and organized to understanding how writers establish their ethos and use sources effectively, students will both learn about and practice the conventions of academic writing. Content and assignments will vary by instructor, but students can expect to read and write in a range of genres. Regular reflective writing will help students develop a metacognitive awareness of their own writing practices and how they intersect with the expectations of an academic readership, a chief learning goal for all WRTG courses. For first year students or by permission of the instructor. Offered in Spring term.
