ELSO 6520 - Strategies for Writing in Your Field


     
Fall, Spring (weeks 1-7 and 8-15 both semesters). 1.5 credits. S/U grades only.

M. Cox, N. Lindberg, M. Myers.

One of the greatest challenges of graduate school is learning the writing practices of your discipline: learning how to write with the processes, in the structures and styles, and with the rhetorical moves favored by the field. How do people learn to write as “disciplinary insiders” when writing for the field is so infrequently taught? This course introduces strategies for learning discipline-specific writing: such as learning from experienced writers in the field, identifying resources that support writing in their field, and answering questions about writing through the analysis of published texts in the field.
