More Information

Section Description

The aim of this course is to prepare students for college level writing and to help all students improve their writing for various purposes. To fulfill the First Year Writing requirement for the university, in this course we will work to achieve the Foundational Writing and Information Literacy Goals: rhetorical discernment, critical reading, substantive revision and information literacy. These goals will be promoted through four units (each worth 25 percent of the final grade).

Section Expectation

Four units of the course involve: (1) Drafting a Social Narrative to bring readers inside a place, event, or problem; (2) Gaining experience with Research Methods, including research logs, storyboards and an annotated bibliography; (3) Drafting a literature review representing the research from unit 2; (4) Drafting a genre transformation involving a substantial revision of either the social narrative or the literature review. Students will work online in Blackboard and ELI Review to workshop written exercises and drafts. There will also be instruction in utilizing the UVM library databases.


Student will be evaluated on participation, effort, timeliness and polish.
