Research Methods & Acad - WR

This course focuses on analytical, argumentative and research writing, with an emphasis on research strategies and the finer points of advanced academic writing. Students will study and learn to utilize various analytical heuristics to improve their reading, critical thinking, and writing skills. Emphasis will be on the methods of process-based research writing, including library and note-taking strategies, using inquiry to guide research, peer-review workshops, and utilizing citation styles like MLA and APA. Each semester the research and writing will be focused on an overall course theme, such as ?Justice and Prejudice? or ?Science and Society,? and will require reading and analyzing important works related to this theme as part of the research and writing process. Assignments and readings all seek to prepare students for the course?s final project, a 10-15 page seminar essay, and the course is specifically designed to prepare students for submitting abstracts and presenting their original research at area and regional undergraduate conferences.
