Environmental issues involve diverse decision-makers and stakeholders. This course will focus on how to understand, engage, and persuade the audiences that we want to reach. Students will study the techniques of classical rhetoric, mass communication, and scientific writing as a foundation for improving their own writing. This intensive writing course is designed to develop each student’s abilities in careful reading, argument construction, persuasive writing, and substantive editing. The course aims to challenge and support students at a variety of levels of confidence and expertise in writing. Students can expect to receive constructive feedback from both the instructor and other students through weekly writing workshops. For some of these assignments, if they choose, students may write on topics related to their candidacy paper or thesis.
