PWR 6LSP: PWR 6 Leland Scholars Program: Exploring Research, Writing and Argument at Stanford

Our work together in this course is focused on providing an introduction to critical reading, rhetorical thinking, academic writing, college-level research, and crafting and presenting well-reasoned arguments. Through class discussions, readings, writing assignments, and a collaborative research project, we will consider: What does it mean to write effectively? How can we best persuade others in the different situations that we encounter each day? How can we argue convincingly about ideas that truly matter to us, whether in the classroom, with friends, or in broader social contexts?

PWR 6VT: Writing in the University: Debates about the Politics and Technologies of Journalism

Lately, journalism has been in the news: every day we see or hear a new story about problems with journalism and the news media¿from charges of biased coverage to fake news circulating on Facebook. Yet, push alerts from news apps and social media also shape our daily conversations. In this class, we will investigate the news industry, examining the challenges faced by journalists today and emerging new forms of digital journalism. We will focus on the political, economic and technological forces that have shaped the writing and rhetoric of journalists. Students might explore debates such as fake news, bias and objectivity; partisanship and polarization; or polling and political coverage. We start by writing an analytical essay about multimedia reporting, move into writing about research regarding a topic of your choice, and close by sharing research in oral presentations. At each step, we work together as a group, doing workshops, engaging in discussion, and collaborating in peer review. Our research projects will provide the opportunity to engage with recent scholarship and stake out your own positions on the future of journalism.

PWR 91CG: Intermediate Writing: Science and Technology Writing for Popular Audiences

Whether you're a fuzzy or a techie, chances are you've had to explain the content of the classes you've taken to outside audiences. You've had to explain to your parents how your/their tuition dollars are at work, or you've advocated for your well-rounded background during a job interview. Your access to Stanford has granted you a certain expert label, even if it doesn't always feel that way. This course leverages your growing expertise by introducing you to writing styles and genres that will allow you to communicate your technical interests to a non-expert, or popular, audience. We'll talk about stylistic points including story ledes and anecdotes, metaphor, and organizing familiar and non-familiar language in our writing. We'll also experiment with different genres that accomplish these translation goals by experimenting with writing abstracts, journalism pieces, provocative podcasts, first-person narratives, visual essays, and creative non-fiction essays. Our ultimate goal will be to not only better understand these styles and genres in order to communicate more effectively with a wide variety of audiences, but to also seek publication in local newspapers, blogs, and sources such as Salon, Slate, The Huffington Post, The Atlantic, and even Wired or Radiolab.

PWR 91CL: Intermediate Writing: Self & Science

"Self & Science" mines the intersection of memoir and science writing. In this advanced experimental writing course, students will read a selection of essays by writers including Lewis Thomas, Oliver Sacks, Annie Dillard, and Mark Doty, which illustrate the shared intellectual foundation in observation of scientific and poetic inquiry. Building on these readings, students will be challenged to produce an experimental essay that transgresses genre boundaries in the service of considering how personal reflection can narrate researched discoveries. Over the course of the quarter, students are invited to bolster their overall communication acumen, enhance their ability to share valuable discoveries beyond the confines of their major discipline, and practice the difficult bliss of engaging a discerning public audience.
