Writing assignments are structured to build cumulatively towards the final paper, following collaborative rounds of revision and presentation. Developing critical self-awareness through engagement with various critical models, students will be encouraged to experiment with the traditional form of the academic essay.nNote: This Writing-Intensive Seminar in English (WISE) course fulfills WIM for English majors.
