Description

This course serves transfer and upper-division students who seek support to meet the expectations for writing, and especially in courses that meet LSA’s Upper-Level Writing Requirement. Operating on a workshop and discussion format, this course provides an opportunity to identify writing strengths and issues, set personal goals, and practice writing in a collaborative environment. Students work with writing they produce in other classes.

This C/NC, one-credit parallel course is designed to practice writing in a supportive environment and addresses the writing challenges that students bring to the course, providing direct assistance to transfer and upper-division student writers. The course will help students identify key stages in the writing process from deciphering assignment prompts, planning papers and time schedules to generating ideas and learning the writing expectations for various disciplines. This course will stress the increased significance of revision for success in advanced writing. Our goal is to improve your recognition of practices that will promote your success and effectiveness in writing at the University of Michigan and beyond.

Our class work will include the opportunity to critically annotate one of your previous college papers, contribute and share information on your experience on a course blog, present work in class, share and workshop your current writing in peer groups, and annotate a current writing assignment. Students will be expected to participate and involve themselves in the community of the class as we build a supportive writing environment.

Intended Audience:

This course will benefit both first-term transfer undergraduates – and other upper-division undergraduates who feel less confident and prepared for upper-level writing.

Class Format:

Instruction Mode: Classes and one-to-one meetings will be synchronous. Students will write responses asynchronously on a course blog.

Learning Mode: This course will use canvas and a course blog for readings and responses; class meetings and one-to-one meetings will be conducted through Zoom or Blue Jeans.

Course Testing/Assessment: Students complete responses on an asynchronous course blog, but all course meetings and one-to-one meetings will be synchronous.
