Inquiries may be directed to Dr. Gwendolynne Reid, Director of the Writing Program (firstname.lastname@example.org).
ENG 185/6: "Writing & Inquiry in the Liberal Arts" introduces students to the range of writing and inquiry they will encounter as part of their liberal arts education, engaging them with the role of writing in inquiry. It is designed to introduce students to rhetorical principles for writing, including disciplinarity as an important element of academic rhetorical situations and exposing them to writing across a range of disciplines and purposes. Using inquiry-based approaches, the course introduces students how to ask good questions about new writing situations and unfamiliar genres as well as strategies and tools for developing, revising, and editing their writing. The course introduces students to resources and strategies for college-level library research and research-based writing.
