Almost every day of your upcoming college career, you'll be asked a very exciting but potentially intimidating question: What do you think?

Flash back for a moment to high school. How many times were you asked what you *really* thought--not what the teacher thought, not what you thought the teacher wanted to hear, but what your real, honest reaction was to the class material? Did you ever feel like even though you're a bright person and you were paying attention, you still weren't sure *what* you thought about something when you were finally asked? Did you ever feel like you had a an idea coming on like a sneeze about to happen, but you couldn't quite figure out how to get the idea out and phrase it so that other people could understand? If so, then this is the class for you. Come on in!

This writing class is probably unlike any you’ve ever taken before. You’ll have an experienced writing faculty member by your side to not only to teach you exciting new ways to develop and organize your writing, but also to help you develop the ability to shape and deepen thoughts—a skill that will serve you well in all of your future classes. We’ll meet twice weekly in a computer classroom to discuss homework readings, work together in small groups, research via computer, and other exciting activities. Each student will also have valuable one-on-one time to revise and discuss written work directly with the instructor; we’ll meet for these individual meetings at least seven times during the semester. We’ll work on paper essays, of course, but we’ll also experiment with other forms of digital composition that you’ll be expected to use at the University level, including audio essay and Microsoft PowerPoint. You will be evaluated on your class participation, active efforts to improve your writing and thinking abilities, and the quality of a final portfolio that you’ll work on throughout the semester and submit at the end of the term. Stay tuned to our CTools site for textbook information.
