Research Writing

Strengthens performance of college-level argumentative writing and scholarly research, critical reading and thinking, and the critique and the creation of print and new media texts. Prerequisite: either B CUSP 101, B CUSP 114, or B CUSP 134. Offered: AWSp.

Class description

In BCUSP 135 the main project is the production of a research-based piece of writing appropriate to a university setting. Each student develops an individual topic that comes out of a set of common texts we will read and watch early in the quarter.

Those texts center on issues of knowledge production through the careful evaluation of information because those concerns are crucial to us as researchers.

During our time together assignments and activities also include several shorter essays, in-class presentations and library sessions. We will emphasize the importance of drafting and revision.
