Writing Courses - Course Descriptions

ENGL 6180: Composition Course Design, Research Methods and Assessment

In this course, we take up methods of research currently used in the field of rhetoric and composition, including but not limited to ethnography, case studies, discourse analysis, teacher-research, and inquiry. We take time to connect these methods to both classroom and programmatic assessment, as well as discussing how these methods can be used to influence course design.  From that study, students produce a proposal for an extended research project that will be carried out in a capstone project that fulfills the final requirements for the Certificate in the Teaching of Writing.
