This is an intensive course introducing students to writing as a means of discovery. In Writing I students practice and share their written articulation of ideas as a community of writers. Students read a variety of intellectually challenging and thematically coherent texts in a range of genres. Throughout, the emphasis is on writing and communication skills as processes involving multiple steps, including drafting, discussion, revision, and re-thinking. The work of the class is conducted in classroom, small-group, and one-on-one sessions.
