WRITING EXERCISES & ASSIGNMENTS
Exercises include analysis, practice, and short writing tasks in the textbook. During the first half of the course, writing assignments include part-genres, or texts that are incorporated into more-lengthy academic works by professional academic writers. These assignments help you, as a novice academic writer, to develop your academic writing awareness and to understand your positioning as a scholar in their field. The genres, chosen based on overall needs of enrolled students, will be selected from among: problem-solution, definition, general-specific/specific-general, problem-solution with process, data commentary, position, or critique. In the second part of the course, you will produce components of a typical research paper in their field. These will include Methods, Results, Introduction, Limitations, and Discussion. Abstracts and Acknowledgements will be covered. For each major assignment, you will turn in 1) a draft, 2) peer review documents and feedback, 3) the revised version incorporating peer feedback comments with a revision report explaining the revision. Much of the assigned work will be based on the collection of research articles that you build throughout the semester.
