This course is designed to explore and critically examine writing through an inclusive Indigenous lens, and is for students who want to improve their critical thinking skills, expand their communication and problem-solving skills, and develop knowledge and skills in academic writing. This course will review and teach the writing process by hands-on activities and assignments to encourage well-developed writing habits.
Elements of writing explored and practiced: brainstorming, pre-writing, outlining, thesis statements and research questions, primary and secondary sources, rhetoric, grammar and mechanics, format (MLA, APA) drafting, editing and revision techniques. This is an inclusive environment for any student wanting to strengthen their writing, close reading, and critical thinking skills.
To successfully participate in this program students need access to a computer, smart phone, and internet. Students should expect to spend 3 hours a week in synchronous meetings using Canvas, Zoom, and the phone.
