Inquiry and Academic Writing
In support of the Educational Opportunity Program, First-Year Writing offers WRIT 110: Inquiry and Academic Writing, a course designed to help students bridge the gap between high school and college.
Drawing from theories informed by the latest research in academic literacy, WRIT 110
aims to teach students not a set of rote competencies, but a form of educational and
cultural awareness. To encourage a shift in perspective, WRIT 110 seeks to instill
in students the understanding that personal experience and cultural knowledge are
not just credible, but worthy of scholarly exploration.
