This syllabus is for a Freshmen Inquiry Writing Seminar, which is a two-section, collaboratively taught course wherein one of the two courses engages students in critical thinking, reading, and writing about the issue of language and literacy, while the other introduces students to conventions of academic writing and mentors them in social and rhetorical writing processes. Thus, this course draws on the topic of language and literacy as a vehicle for critically analyzing students' own languages and literacies and developing especially their academic and information literacies.
Throughout the course, students are encouraged to reflect on their writing practice. As a culminating assignment for the course, students are asked in this assignment prompt to analyze their writing and writing process. They are asked to reflect on whether or not they met the course outcomes in their final paper and support their analysis with artifacts from their participation throughout the course.
