AWR 101 Writing and Inquiry

Writing and Inquiry invites students to explore questions and think of themselves as writers, constructing answers rhetorically in academic and community contexts. During the writing process, students will consider their own and others' perspectives on a variety of vital personal, historical, philosophical, and social issues. Taking their own experiences and their peers' perspectives as credible sources of knowledge, students will expand their inquiries beyond the personal into complex discussions in academic, literary and public textual forms. Students will also practice appropriate use and critique of technology, using digital sources as support for their arguments and grounds for further inquiry. Students must complete AWR 101 with a grade of "C" or better to register for AWR 201.
