Advanced Principles of Writing - WRT 102
Advanced Principles of Writing consists of eight workshops (scheduled the third through eleventh weeks of the semester) and a minimum of three independently scheduled individual appointments. Students hone writing skills including summary, analysis, comparison, and synthesis.
Oral Communication - WRT 120

Teaching Writing - WRT 150 (cross-listed as EDU 150)
Teaching Writing offers both theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience for students serving as Writing Fellows for college courses or teaching writing in other settings. Student will read about theories of teaching writing, practice skills of running workshops and facilitating peer review, observe the teaching of writing in several contexts, share experiences of mentoring, journal about their experiences, and synthesize their learning in a final project.
Writing Intensive Courses
Some courses are designated "writing intensive." A writing intensive course encourages students to use writing to understand course materials, develop critical thinking skills, and communicate ideas effectively.
Students work on writing assignments--formal or informal, graded or ungraded--throughout the semester. They need not complete written assignments every week, but do complete a substantial number.
Although not all written work receives instructor feedback, students receive frequent suggestions for improvement. Revision: Students are encouraged to revise at least one, and ideally more, of their assignments.
The instructor provides clear written instructions for all assignments.
A substantial part of the course grade depends on the quality of written work. Instructors make explicit their criteria for evaluating written work.
