Six-credit Reading and Writing Course

Syllabus

Unit Project One — Education Autobiography

Unit Project Two — Placeography

Unit Project Three — Education Narrative

Unit Project Four — Argument

Unit Project 5 — I-Search

Shared by Jeremy Branstad

I follow a pretty traditional assignment sequence by transitioning from experience-based writing to source-based writing as the semester progresses. Students really seem to enjoy the placeography (unit 2), literacy narrative (unit 3) and i-search paper (unit 5) assignments. I’ll probably cut the fourth unit to make time for other things, maybe an audio essay, if I run the course again. I’m told that my assignments can look like a bit of a bear, at least in comparison to what students in my course levels at community colleges are sometimes assigned. I’m a pretty friendly person and I run safe, relaxed, and portfolio-based courses were students are encouraged to take risks, make mistakes, and grow.

Goals and Questions

Shared by Susan Naomi Bernstein

With inspiration from/credit to an activity presented at a universal design pedagogy workshop at Landmark College in Putney, Vermont

After perusing the course syllabus and preliminary discussion of the course goals and assignments, draw on this activity to engage communication and understanding between students and professor.
