UWRT 1103 - Writing and Inquiry in Academic Contexts I and II
Credit Hours: (3)
Students write extensively as they explore literacy and writing. They engage critically with the opinions and voices of others while developing an extended inquiry project that integrates materials from varied sources and includes writing in multiple genres. Students write, revise, edit and reflect on their writing with the support of the teacher and peers. Students also immerse themselves in a conversation about a topic through reading, questioning, and process writing. Students learn to distinguish rhetorical contexts, practice different conventions, and develop positions in relation to research. They also adopt digital technologies to network, compose, and/or critique and disseminate their work. 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 .
