a wide range of programs and courses at Evergreen

Evergreen students are expected to demonstrate integrative, independent, and critical thinking—that's one of the six expectations for graduates. Most often, students demonstrate their thinking in writing. The purpose of this course is to help you develop skills as a writer and thinker in academic programs across the curriculum. We will focus on critical components of academic writing, including skills related to working with ideas found in other writers' texts, whether those texts are books or articles or take some other form. We will explore preconceptions you have about what good writers do, investigate conventions for writing across academic fields, and practice a lot of writing. All levels welcome.
