This section of ENGLISH 225 involves an inquiry-driven curriculum based in student empirical research methods, including site observation and experiential learning through a 30-day experiment. All assignments will center around inquiry-driven learning, and an initial 30 day experiment. Students will participate in literature circles, based on inquiry-driven learning, compose traditional assignments like research essays, but also compose blogs and other multimodal assignments, and finally share and celebrate the academic term’s work in panel presentations.

“Project:Experiment” calls on students to participate in an immersion project for which they try something new within a specific community (of their choice) for thirty days, collect data, and document their experience. These interests and experience become important sources in establishing an argument, as students enter a universal conversation in establishing primary research. From this primary research, students answer a research question of interest, and establish an argument by synthesizing first hand accounts with secondary research.
