WRIT 20100 - Writing & Research II: Inquiry


(4) WRIT 20100 advances skills developed in WRIT 10100 to help students meet foundational competency in effective communication and as well as informed inquiry.   Students will enhance their understanding of how to apply skills in reading, writing and information gathering to a self-generated research question. WRIT 20100 emphasizes effective writing for multiple audiences, including discipline-specific and professional audiences. Key sequenced assignments involve: synthesizing information from multiple sources to support and develop a self-generated research topic; achieving foundational proficiency in academic citation styles for effective, ethical thinking in writing; analyzing ways that audience expectations shape written communication.  The enduring value of Writing & Research II is that it advances lifelong effective communication, grounded in self-directed inquiry and ethical use of information. Writing & Research II develops the ability to advance ideas and connect with multiple audiences through writing. Satisfies EC Written Communication for Foundational Studies. Prerequisite: WRIT 10100  or placement by examination. Minimum grade of C (defined as C+, C, C-) or better required for course completion. Offered Fall/Spring.
