Writing 110

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. 

For more information, see the WRIT 110 syllabus, or contact Sean Fenty, Director,
Writing Initiative and First-Year Writing, or Angie Pelekidis, Assistant Director of First-Year Writing.
