In WRT 205, students develop an extended inquiry project that integrates materials from varied sources and includes writing in multiple genres. Students compose, revise, and reflect on their writing with the support of their teacher and peers. Through applied practice and ongoing reflection, students learn to distinguish academic contexts; develop positions in relation to research, purposes, and settings; and attribute sources according to genre and situated convention. Polished compositions might assume a variety of forms including but not limited to presentations, reviews, proposals, essayistic arguments, and multimedia and Web-based projects. Students also use digital technologies to network, compose, and/or critique and disseminate their work. The course will use a portfolio to aid in learning and assessment.
