UWRT 1101 - Writing and Inquiry in Academic Contexts I
Credit Hours: (3)
Writing is both the primary subject of inquiry and the primary activity. Students write, revise, edit and reflect on their writing with the support of the teacher and peers. Students also engage critically with the opinions and voices of others, as they are encouraged to understand how their writing can have an effect on themselves and their environments. As the primary subject of readings and discussion, writing is explored as it relates to different contexts, discourses, cultures and textual media. As students inquire into literacy, they understand their own writing and development with heightened awareness. Grades are derived primarily from portfolios that include work generated throughout the term.
Prerequisite(s): Appropriate score on SAT Verbal and high school performance; the prerequisite determines whether students take both UWRT 1101 and UWRT 1102 , or just UWRT 1103 .
