HON 215 - Academic Writing: Thinking and Writing in Honors

Students will attain critical reading, writing, revision, and presentation skills and be introduced to the interdisciplinary nature of knowledge creation and production. Students will use a variety of research methods to craft independent projects. They will attain an understanding of different disciplinary conventions, audiences, and rhetorical modes. By the end of the semester, students will be able to conduct independent academic research, critically review literature, and understand the practices and conventions of research-based writing. In short, this course offers an extended exploration of how we learn and communicate what we need to know and share that learning in a variety of venues. Our hope is that students in this course will develop a supportive group of intellectual peers and a deeper understanding of how knowledge is created and disseminated, both inside and outside of the academy.
