060.100 (H) (W) Introduction to Expository Writing

(3) Limit 10 per section.

In seminar classes capped at 10 students, Intro to Expos introduces students to academic writing. Through readings, class discussions, individual conferences, drafts, and revisions, students identify and practice the intellectual moves of analysis and argument. They learn to pose good questions, consider the answers scholars have offered already, propose new answers, anticipate dissent, cite ethically, and convey what is at stake in the conversation. Over the course of three major writing assignments, students learn to meaningfully join a public, dynamic conversation about a text or topic.
