Writing 122 will extend existing skills derived from Writing 121 to explore various genres that can be used in argumentative and academic writing. The course theme is “Finding your Voice: An Ecology of Place.” This course also partners with the Freshman Runway “Finding your Voice,” with faculty Tricia Rodley. WR 122 focuses on specific ways to develop argumentative essays in response to the challenges of complex contexts, which include increasingly sophisticated competing arguments and issues, as well as an expansion of enthymeme-based arguments. Students practice further how to develop effective theses and compose essays in various modalities, in which they control the reasoning that supports their theses. The course emphasizes critical reading of more intellectually demanding essays.
Research is an iterative process, meaning it's repetitive but you learn as you move forward and make changes. It's more cyclical than straightforward or linear. Use the side navigation to learn about each of the steps of the process, and don't be afraid to jump around between steps.
