Academic Writing at Evergreen

Fall 2014 quarter

Taught by

composition, education, literature

This writing intensive course has two purposes. The first is to help students develop as academic writers, to engage in writing as intellectual work. We will work on developing "rhetorical reading" skills--noticing not only what something is about, but also how it is put together. Building on common readings, students will experiment with writing about a topic for different audiences and purposes. We will also explore academic writing at Evergreen--how it is different from and similar to academic writing at other liberal arts colleges. This course can serve as an introduction to academic writing, or as a refresher for students with some prior experience.
