Recommended Cross-Listed Classes

WRD 371/MLS 490, Special Topics: Mentoring Youth in Community Writing Groups

WRD Major Elective; PW Minor Elective

Liberal Studies Junior Experiential Learning 

Jennifer Finstrom, LPC, TTH 11:20-12:50

This course is for any student who is interested in both mentoring young writers and understanding how writing in community functions as an identity-building process. In this class, you will not only have the opportunity to provide extensive online feedback for young writers engaged in imaginative work, but also to occasionally meet them. Course readings will address the value found in writing groups and communities, as well as how to best provide effective feedback. You will also reflect extensively on the intersection of identity, community, and mentoring through writing. This course fulfills the Experiential Learning domain requirement in the Liberal Studies Program and provides an active learning experience as a productive member of a writing community.

 

WRD 390/MLS 490, Special Topics: Rhetoric and Public Writing

WRD Major Requirement; PW Minor Elective

Liberal Studies Senior Capstone

Professor Jason Kalin, LPC, MW 1:00-2:30

In this section of WRD’s LSP Capstone, we will explore current scholarship that seeks to define *the public* or *publics* and the possibilities for using rhetorical action to explore, understand, and engage in the co-construction of public life with others. We will assume that writing instruction grounded in a conventional understanding of argumentation may not be well suited to changed and changing conditions–those brought about by digital technologies as well as the increasing privatization of interests and institutions once understood to make up the public domain. We will assume as well that public life will increasingly be dominated by questions of power, difference, and representation. The course will function initially like a seminar and later as a practicum: we will expect an initial study of how we might engage meaningfully in public deliberation to inspire a blueprint for individual or collective rhetorical action.
