Welcome! With this class you officially enter a conversation between scholars, writers, and readers. Your individuality and voice qualify you to enter this dialogue. Your ability to notice, to engage a text, to organize and articulate your thoughts, and to interrogate those thoughts will empower that voice.
Through Peer Review, we will engage, encourage, and challenge one another. Our classroom will serve as a living, real-time microcosm for this greater dialogue. We will read and write in earnest, and as we learn to read actively, the line between reading and writing will blur. We will often engage in group discussion. When we connect—with a text or with each other—we learn.
This class will cover the reading and writing skills necessary for a thriving student experience. We will engage all parts of the academic writing process: active reading, brainstorming, research, outlining, “first” drafts, and revision. Students should leave this class confident in their ability to read and notice, to express their own thoughts, and to integrate these thoughts with outside texts. Writing can and should be a conscious and productive process that will serve every student throughout his or her college experience and beyond.
