WRIT 9 Composition: Theory and Practice

This course explores the complex relationship between writing and knowledge as it is theorized and practiced, focusing on the important pedagogical shifts in Composition and Rhetoric over the last fifty years. Special topics may include how writing is taught (and knowledge constructed) within the disciplines; the intersection of rhetoric, power, and culture; debates concerning collaborative learning and intellectual property; the challenges of multi-media composition; conversations between composition and critical theory.
Note: This course is strongly recommended for those pursing Secondary Teaching Certification through the Education Department's Teacher Education Program. This course does not carry major credit.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.


Not offered in the period from 17F through 19S.
