Title: Academic Writing for Undergrads Syallbus
Post by: agreenf2 on May 07, 2020, 07:11:41 PM
This is a syllabus that I created for an undergrad writing class adopted from one of the U of I's syllabi to include a focus on writing in the disciplines. (I made this for a job application  :D .) It include a project that I created to help students learn more about writing styles within a discipline (hopefully their major). In this project, students must interview a teacher within their discipline or a discipline in which they have interest. They then use summary and paraphrasing skills that they have learned in the class to write a report on this interview. This is followed by a day in which all the students have a group discussion about writing styles in their disciplines to take note of some of the differences that occur in writing styles.
