This course provides instruction and practice in written inquiry and critical reading. It introduces writing as a way of developing, exploring, and testing ideas. The course also orients students to informational literacy, the writing center, and writing technologies.

COURSE OBJECTIVE
This student-centered, inquiry-based writing course is designed to help students throughout their college careers and as they enter communities beyond the college. Inquiry-based writing is designed to engage the student in both problem posing and problem solving. Drawing on the rhetorical situation—specifically, audience, purpose, and context—instruction emphasizes the social nature of inquiry and how writers test ideas to discover the reasons behind and for discursive choices.
