New Section in the Expository Writing Program for Autumn16: ENGL 182, 282 and 382

Submitted by Caterina Rost on June 30, 2016 - 11:45am

The Expository Writing Program has just created some new options for students to fulfill their "C" composition requirements, which might be appealing and appropriate for students in various majors.

ENGL 182 - Composition: Multimodal

ENGL 282 - Intermediate Composition: Multimodal

ENGL 382 - Special Topics in Multimodal Composition

ENGL 282 and ENGL 382 both offer "W" credits to enrolled students who have already completed their "C" requirement.

We would like to give you descriptions of these courses and discuss what opportunities students have in taking these courses.
  • "ENGL 182 - English 182 focuses on teaching strategies and skills for effective writing and argument that are required of traditional academic genres, such as the research essay, while also expanding the skills for composing in multimodal genres that our increasingly digital and media saturated world demands."
  • "ENGL 282 - This course offers strategies for composing effective multimodal texts for print, digital and/or physical delivery, with focus on affordances of various modes—words, images, sound, design, and gesture—and genres to address specific rhetorical situations both within and beyond the academy."
  • "ENGL 382 - This course offers students in a variety of disciplines--humanities, business, arts, sciences, engineering, etc.--an opportunity to learn and practice skills in writing and communicating across media. The course provides a creative, collaborative space for students to work on projects connected to their interests and to share communicative, cultural, disciplinary, and technical resources. Over a series of weekly studio sessions, students will learn and apply ethical, empathetic strategies for research and design, for prototyping and usability testing, and for encountering failure and being accountable. At the end of the quarter, students will present on and submit a final project. This course satisfies the UW composition (C) or writing (W) credit.
The follow sections are available in the fall:
  • ENGL 182 MW 8:30-10:20
  • ENGL 182 TTH 8:30-10:20
